Kentucky's long history of football futility against Florida has been well documented, with the Cats holding the longest losing streak to a regular opponent in the country at 27 straight.
Both head coaches downplayed the streak that started long before their players were born.
"It's a 2014 Florida team versus a 2014 Kentucky team," Muschamp declared on Monday. "That's all it is to me."
Stoops said it's not something the team discusses. "We're pretty motivated to get out there and play well and to try to get a win."
Never miss a local story.
UK offensive coordinator Neal Brown said he'd put the futility versus Florida in the dark recesses of his mind.
"I hadn't even thought about it, man," the former UK player said. "I really hadn't. I really hadn't. I'd kind of forgotten about it, really. I think I want to forget about it.
"I mean it is what it is. Until we beat them, it's going to be there. It's not something we're real fired up about."
■ The streaks that some fans might be more interested in are the losing streaks against Southeastern Conference foes for both teams. One of the teams will see theirs end Saturday.
The Cats have lost 16 straight to league opponents and Florida has lost five in a row.
