Kentucky Blows Chance To Beat Florida On Defensive Miscommunication

Share

Florida scored the winning touchdown with 43 seconds remaining, when Luke Del Rio found a wide-open Freddie Swain for a 5-yard touchdown.

The Gators extended their winning streak over the Wildcats to 31 games, the nation's longest streak in FBS, and took early control of the SEC's Eastern Division.

"That's two weeks in a row we didn't give up", said UF coach Jim McElwain, a week after the Gators beat Tennessee on the game's final play.

You may be pulling for the Gators and feel like you're going to have a heart attack from suspense but you have to take some comfort in seeing these two wins.

Florida did not lead until the final minute of the game, and they had to overcome a 27-14 deficit. Del Rio then marched the Gators 58 yards for the winning score to stun a blue-clad sellout crowd of 62,945 hungry to see Kentucky end a generation of frustration against the Gators. The first came on a 45-yard pass from Feleipe Franks to Tyrie Cleveland with just more than 3 minutes left in the first half.

United Kingdom football has suffered many tough losses to Florida during the recently extended 31-game losing streak, but Saturday night's loss at Kroger Field ranks amongst the worst. They also were in danger of blowing the game at the end, but they prevailed.

Kentucky gave up 14 points on undefended passes due to defensive communication issues and a long pass on a trick play where the receiver got behind the defense to set up a third Florida touchdown.

Kentucky got the ball back with 43 seconds to go, but missed a 56-yard field goal attempt at the buzzer.

That's of little solace to the Buffaloes, whose self-inflicted wounds included a trio of interceptions, several fumbled snaps and a too-early slide on third down by quarterback Steven Montez that led to a punt - which was blocked. With the loss went a chance to prove they could win a marquee game and reach a lofty status in the SEC. Austin MacGinnis' kick was straight, but fell short.

"We knew they were going to come to play for all four quarters", said Johnson who threw for 196 yards and there touchdowns.

Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops talks to his team during a timeout during the second half of an NCAA college football game against Florida Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017, in Lexington, Ky.

"It's very disappointing", Stoops said.

There was the 24-22 home loss to Tennessee in 1987, when Kentucky chose to send the diminutive dynamo Mark Higgs over the top four times from inside the 2-yard-line - hey, he did rush for more than 130 yards that day - to no avail.

United Kingdom has one last chance.
