Kentucky’s current 29-game losing streak to Florida is the longest in-conference streak in SEC history.

The Cats have not beaten the Gators since 1986. They have not beaten Florida in Gainesville since 1979. They get their chance to snap both those streaks this Saturday at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Gametime is 3:30 p.m. on CBS.
