ABOUT FLORIDA (2-0, 0-0 SEC): Franks was razor sharp in the win over UT Martin, connecting on 25-of-27 passes for 270 yards and two touchdowns as he broke Tim Tebow's single-game school record for completion percentage. The offense rolled up 543 yards in the win, giving the Gators at least 500 yards of total offense in four of the last six games after producing three such performances from 2015-17 before Mullen's arrival. The defense has been getting to quarterbacks with 15 sacks in the first two games, including 10 in the opener versus Miami, and the unit will need to pressure the Wildcats' new signal-caller to help a Gators secondary that may be forced to turn to freshmen with star corner CJ Henderson doubtful after hurting his ankle last weekend.

ABOUT KENTUCKY (2-0, 0-0): Smith is no stranger to collegiate action, hitting 144-of-229 passes for 1,669 yards and 14 TDs while leading Troy to the Dollar General Bowl last year, but the Gators defense will no doubt provide a far more formidable challenge. The Wildcats, though, did most of their damage a year ago against Florida on the ground, churning out 303 yards, but Kentucky's all-time leading rusher Benny Snell (175 yards in that outing) has moved on to the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers and Wilson (105 yards) is injured, leaving the team with some running game concerns. The Wildcats did outgain Eastern Michigan 239-49 on the ground last week, and the run defense remains stout up front despite the departure of first-team All-American Josh Allen.
