Florida Gators vs. Kentucky Wildcats Complete Game Preview
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

For more than a quarter of a century, Florida has had the upper hand on Kentucky in their college football rivalry.

Although the Gators come into Lexington, Ky., with a 26-game winning streak against the Wildcats, both teams enter the 64th game of their series under new leadership. 

Kentucky is in its first season under new head coach Mark Stoops. Stoops' run as the defensive coordinator at Florida State from 2010-12 has familiarized him quite well with the Gators. 

Kentucky opens its SEC season against No. 20 Florida on Saturday and is 1-2 on the season. The Wildcats are coming off a bye week after a 27-13 loss to the top-10 Louisville Cardinals.

Florida entered the 2013 season by coming off its own loss to Louisville, stemming from January's 33-23 Sugar Bowl setback. The Gators sit at 2-1 after opening conference play with a sloppy win against Tennessee at home last weekend.

The victory signaled the end of quarterback Jeff Driskel's season, as Driskel broke his leg to turn the starting reins over to redshirt backup Tyler MurphyWhile Murphy rose to the occasion, this weekend's night game against the Wildcats will mark his first college start at quarterback.
