“Third down” is the best way to describe the third quarter for both Florida and Kentucky. The Gators were able to convert 4-of-5 times on third down, while the Cats weren’t able to convert. Although exhausted, UK’s defense has held up and have held Florida scoreless for the quarter to keep the score at 21-7. The Cats still have a chance, but they aren’t giving themselves a chance on missed opportunities. Tyler Murphy has thrown 14-for-16, for 147 yards. Josh Forrest made an interception for Kentucky and nearly ran it back before he was tackled down by Murphy; it was UK’s first interception of the year.
On the same drive, WR Alex Montgomery was injured in a near helmet-to-helmet in which he was hit underneath his chin. Max Smith then proceeded to throw an interception in the end zone in Kentucky’s only productive drive of the quarter. The Gators have outgained the Cats 340-134 yards, while continuing to control the clock.
