How to watch Florida Gators college football vs. Kentucky Wildcats on TV, live stream
The Florida Gators football team is looking to assert itself as a contender for the SEC East title.
To do that, they first have to take down the undefeated Kentucky Wildcats.
The No. 9 Gators travel to Lexington on Saturday, October 2 to take on the No. 23 Wildcats. The only loss between the teams this season came when Florida lost a thriller to No. 1 Alabama two weeks ago.
Florida (3-1) is coming off a convincing 38-14 win over Tennessee. Quarterback Emory Jones put up career highs in both rushing yards (144) and passing yards (204). Fellow dual-threat QB Anthony Richardson was held out against the Vols for what coach Dan Mullen said were cautionary reasons, and he could return Saturday.
UK (4-0) is coming off a 16-10 drag-out win at South Carolina. The offense is led by Penn State transfer Will Levis, who threw for just 102 yards last week. His top target, Wan’Dale Robinson, leads the SEC in receiving yards (402), and Chris Rodriguez Jr. is the rushing leader (520). Kentucky is coached by Mark Stoops.

How to watch No. 10 Florida vs. Kentucky via live online stream
The No. 10 Florida Gators and Kentucky Wildcats meet up in Week 5 at Kroger Field in Lexington. Kickoff is set for 6:00 p.m. ET and the game will air on ESPN. Kentucky won this annual matchup just once since 1987, though this is expected to be a relatively competitive game.
The Oklahoma Sooners have taken over Florida (3-1, 1-1 SEC) when it comes to the amount of noise regarding an in-season quarterback switch, but Emory Jones continues to be efficient as a thrower and a runner as Anthony Richardson recovers from a hamstring injury. Kentucky (4-0, 2-0 SEC) is off to another good start, and the Wildcats will soon add some depth as six players had burglary charges dropped including Vito Tisdale, JuTahn McClain, Andru Phillips, Earnest Sanders, Joel Williams and RJ Adams from an incident that occurred in March.
If you aren’t around a TV to watch the game on Saturday, you can stream it via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription.
