Mark Stoops says Kentucky has 'cleared the air, moved on' from loss to Florida
Kentucky appeared to be in control Saturday when it entered the fourth quarter at home against Florida with an 11-point lead. However, that turned out to not be the case.
The Gators scored 19 unanswered points to come from behind and beat the Wildcats, 29-21. It was a tough loss for Kentucky, which fell to Florida for the 32nd time in its last 33 games against the Gators. The Wildcats snapped a 31-game losing streak against them last year and was a quarter away from starting a winning streak.
Although Kentucky lost in heartbreaking fashion, head coach Mark Stoops said on his Monday radio show that he doesn’t think the loss will linger with his team.
“It’s a good, mature bunch,” Stoops said, according to Jeff Drummond of Rivals.com. “We’ve cleared the air, moved on.”
With two more road matchups the next two weekends at Mississippi State and South Carolina, Kentucky will look to bounce back with a pair of wins before it returns home on Oct. 12 following a bye week.
The Wildcats and Bulldogs are set to kick off on Saturday at 4 p.m. ET on SEC Network.
