A lot of people are betting against 30 years of history. ESPN personalities Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso and Desmond Howard all picked Kentucky to beat Florida for the first time since 1986.
Guest picker Keegan-Michael Key was the only person to pick Florida on ESPN College GameDay Saturday morning.
Florida is a 3-point favorite in the 7:30 p.m. ET game at Kroger Field. The Gators dominated the Wildcats 45-7 in last year’s contest.
First place in the SEC East is on the line as both teams enter Saturday 1-0 in conference play. Kentucky beat South Carolina 23-13 last weekend and Florida connected on a last-second heave to beat Tennessee.
Florida will be looking to extend its winning streak over Kentucky to 31 games. It’s the longest active winning streak of one FBS team over another.
