The lead up
Much like Tennessee did earlier this week, Florida has extended a kind gesture ahead of the arrival of Hurricane Florence.
On Thursday, the Gators announced that they are offering free tickets for Saturday’s home game against Colorado State for families that have been displaced by the impending weather. People who are residents of counties in North Carolina and South Carolina that have evacuated can claim four tickets from 12-2:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at the Gators’ season-ticket holder representative tent at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
On CSU WR Preston Williams:
He’s a great player. They move him around to get him in different spots to get him the ball. He has size and speed. He also has the ability to get yards after catch. He’s an excellent talent.
Does it help you that CSU just played an SEC team?:
Probably helps them a little bit more because they just played an SEC team. It probably gives them confidence coming in here. They fell behind in all there games but they fight back.
What is your level of familiarity with former Georgia assistant and current CSU head coach Mike Bobo?:
I know Mike but I don’t know if we’ve coached against each other much. I know we have but can’t recall… I don’t think our paths have crossed for a few years… He changes personnel really well.
Florida’s 31 game-winning streak over Kentucky is no more, snapped Saturday night in The Swamp by a hungrier, just-as-fast and far more physical Kentucky program.
Read that again for effect, and marinate on this: As painful as it was for the Gators to see the Kentucky flag planted on the 50 yard-line of Steve Spurrier Field, the result was no fluke. The fourth-longest streak in an uninterrupted series in FBS history ended because Kentucky was unequivocally better at football than Florida.
That’s where Florida football is in 2018.
