It was a cold, rainy November day at Commonwealth Stadium in 1986, the last time Kentucky took down Florida.

The Kentucky offense kept the ball out of Florida’s hands.  The Cats possessed the ball for more than 41 minutes behind Bill Ransdell’s efficient 20-of-23 passing and Mark Higgs’ 96 rushing yards.  Higgs scored the game’s only touchdown.

The Kentucky defense played down-right nasty.  On more than one occasion, skirmishes caused the benches to clear.  Florida had a chance to even the score late in the fourth quarter, but the tenacious Tony Mayes forced a fumble to solidify a 10-3 victory.

The Kentucky Sports Radio podcast feed is filled with interviews with players who were on the field for this game.  Ron Mack joined the crew this week, and in previous podcasts (that are now located just below this week’s football podcast) Bill Ransdell, Chris Chenault and Mark Higgs discussed the game extensively.  

There’s one overriding sentiment shared by the 86 team entering today’s game: it’s not about them.  Today is about the 2017 Wildcats.  At the end of the day, hopefully they share the same good company.
