Roman Harper makes bold prediction for Florida-Kentucky game
Roman Harper isn’t too high on the Kentucky Wildcats’ chances against the Florida Gators on Saturday.
A top 20 showdown is in the cards at Florida Field as the No. 12 Gators are set to host the No. 20 Wildcats under the lights in Gainesville. Florida, in Billy Napier’s debut, took down Utah in its season opener, while Kentucky defeated Miami of Ohio. But Harper feels that this one will go the way of the Gators.
“It’s going to look dominant. I’m not trending toward a blowout, but it is in the Swamp and they do play better, they do play differently,” Harper said on “The Paul Finebaum Show” on Tuesday. “Use me as ammo, if you need it, I’m feeding it to you right now, Kentucky Wildcats, but if you want to win this game, you’ve got to stop Florida up front. Kentucky looked a little softer, I hate using the word softer, but they were not as physical running the football.”
Harper mentioned that he wasn’t impressed with what he saw from the Wildcats’ offensive line during their win over Miami of Ohio on Sept. 3. The Redhawks’ defense recorded 4 sacks of Will Levis.
“Tell Coach Stoops I said it to motivate them,” he said. “Good. Coach, y’all did not push everybody around, they were a little soft up front last week. That is not what I’m used to seeing out of a Kentucky offensive line.”
