CBS college football analyst Gary Danielson believes Florida, Kentucky’s next opponent, is “the most underrated team in the country right now.”
From the Orlando-Sentinel:
“Don’t be fooled by a mistake-filled 21-16 loss at Miami or an offense that has scored just 40 points in two games, warns Danielson, who has called SEC games since 2006.
‘They are an elite team that turned the ball over,’ Danielson said in a notes package released by the network. ‘That can happen to any team in any football game. Florida dominated the game and should have won.'”
Though Danielson seems confident in his backing of the 2013 Gators, there are several folks, myself included, who think Kentucky has a chance to pull off the upset. Kentucky has two weeks to prepare, plus Florida will be coming off a rivalry game versus Tennessee, and despite what Danielson is preaching, Florida hasn’t looked like Florida through its first two games. The Gators will be the favorite, as always, but this is the best opportunity Kentucky has had to end the streak in a long, long time.
Not to mention, Stoops is PUMPED for his first game under the lights in Commonwealth. He says his players are, too.
