GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - No. 7 Florida has mostly dominated the Southeastern Conference this season, winning nine of 10 games by double figures and most of those by lopsided margins.
All that success would mean little if the Gators don't beat No. 25 Kentucky on Tuesday night.
Florida has dropped five in a row, including all three meetings last season, against the Wildcats.
So all that talk about being the class of the conference in 2013 would be moot if the Gators don't reverse the trend against the defending national champions.
The Gators are 11-0 at home this season. They handled Wisconsin, routed Missouri and cruised by Mississippi - the toughest games to date in the O'Connell Center.
None of those victories had the same impact that beating Kentucky would have for Florida, which hasn't beaten the Wildcats in more than two years.
