1980: The Last Time Kentucky Basketball and Football Won in Gainesville

@UKFootball

Kentucky officially owns the Sunshine State.

The Kentucky basketball team’s 65-54 win clinched a clean sweep in Gainesville for the Cats in the two major sports.  Five months ago Mark Stoops’ Wildcats defeated Florida 27-16 in The Swamp.

Kentucky has not defeated Florida in football and basketball in Gainesville since the 1979-80 season.  In Fran Curci’s seventh season as UK’s head coach, Kentucky dominated Florida 31-3 in the penultimate game of the season.  Less than two months later, Kyle Macy had 11 points and 7 assists to propel Joe B. Hall’s Wildcats to a 76-63 victory.

In this season’s edition of the Florida basketball and football sweep, each team won by 11 points in Gainesville.

?Just like Football!?????

    Please take this post down. It might be the dumbest take take ever. 37 years of losses and 1 win does not mean we own FLA. Celebrate a great UK hoops win. Celebrate beating FLA after decades of frustration. But don’t act like we own them in football.

      You are a disgrace to your username 00. TD is one of the nicest people and a true blue fan, which you’re obviously not. You’re just an idiot.

    Sorry. Not sorry that is a stupid take. We OWN Florida in football?

      Not sure if you can read or not but it says we OWN the sunshine state. See what that means is we beat them in football and basketball in their respective houses. Probably couldn’t figure that out on your own.

    Bragging about one win in nearly 40 years makes us look stupid.

      We physically dominated your football team back in September and took care of business in basketball. So, suck it!
