The Kentucky run game actually impressed a bit ... at least to the extent that UK actually ran the ball. The pass had no hope; I'm not sure any passing game has hope against Florida.

Florida's defense has been so good this year that it's giving us another version of last year's Bama Bump, where teams that play you see a hell of a bump in their offensive ratings simply because they played you. Their numbers are so weirdly strong that it's screwing up the opponent adjustments. It'll even out, but ... consider this the current answer to "How the hell does UK have the No. 6 ranking in Off. S&P+ right now?" Well, that, and the Wildcats have actually played TWO top-five defenses (No. 1 Florida, No. 5 Louisville).
