The big, bad Florida Gators bring a 30-game winning streak over Kentucky to Kroger Field on Saturday night for their annual meeting with the Wildcats, who haven’t won a game in the series since 1986.

To get a scouting report on Jim McElwain’s club, I talked with Ethan Bauer, who is the University of Florida correspondent for the Miami Herald. Ethan talked about the Gators’ nine suspensions, the play of the offense around quarterback Feleipie Franks, the normally tough Florida defense and the Gators’ approach to the streak.
