It was an awesome weekend to be a fan of University of Kentucky football. (University of Louisville, not so much.)
The Cats went down to Columbia as touchdown-underdogs only to fly back to Lexington on a happy plane ride after stealing a win from the Gamecocks, the fourth in four years.
Now with a 3-0 record through the first three weekends, Kentucky has Florida up next on the schedule with the end of the streak in its crosshairs.
It’s going to be a big one, folks. Get ready.
Mark Stoops will hold his weekly press conference today.
It will be an exciting afternoon at the weekly UK football press conference when Mark Stoops looks back on Saturday’s win and ahead to Florida week. Among the things Stoops will address, we can expect injury updates, depth chart movements, underdog talk and Muschamp’s apology for the poor pregame sportsmanship.
Nick Roush will be there for all of the KSR coverage. I will also be there if I can find a ride, although I guess I could Uber.
I predict Stoops will be in a very chipper mood at the podium.
Kentucky is ranked No. 33 and 34 in the polls.
The new college football rankings came out on Sunday and the Cats found themselves at No. 33 in the Coaches Poll and No. 34 in the AP poll. The former came with 18 votes; the latter with 11 votes.
Many of us had hoped the win at South Carolina would carry a little more weight, but it looks like Kentucky will have to end the streak to crack the top 25.
Florida is a four-point favorite on Saturday.
Las Vegas released its line for next weekend’s slate of games and the visiting Gators of Florida are four-point favorites over your University of Kentucky Wildcats in Kroger Field.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens to Florida’s suspended players this week. I’m sure they’ll all be reinstated.

Saturday’s “Stevie Got Loose” came one day after the 10-year anniversary of the original.
Did you see the KSR Photo Gallery from the game?

Speaking of the KSR football staff, we will release this week’s KSR Football Podcast tomorrow.
Lots more UK-SC talk to come on KSR radio and KSR website.
So keep up with both.
