UK-Florida: By The Numbers


The receiving yards for JUCO All-American Aaron Boone three games into his UK career. Boone, who has been stalled behind Derek Abney on the depth chart at the "X" receiver, caught his first pass on Saturday against the Gators, an ill-fated screen play in the fourth quarter.



The number of third-down conversions recorded by Kentucky's struggling offense in 14 attempts. That brings the Cats' season total to a dismal 9-for-36 (25 percent).



The number of negative-yardage plays made by the Florida defense. Six different Gators had tackles for losses (TFLs), including three by All-American candidate Alex Brown at defensive end.



Jersey number of junior tight end Chase Harp, who scored his first career touchdown on a 2-yard pass from Shane Boyd in the third quarter.



Florida points coming after the Cats had apparently stopped the Gators. A controversial defensive holding call wiped out an Anthony Wajda interception in the second quarter with Florida leading 7-3. An offside penalty in the third quarter negated a fourth-down stop by the UK defense. Three plays later, the Gators scored to make it 23-3.



Florida's halftime point total. The lowest figure against the Cats since they trailed 9-7 at the break in 1993.



Yardage of Tom Malloy's first varsity reception. The walk-on and former JV player's third-quarter catch helped set up the Cats' lone touchdown on the day.



The amount of yardage rolled up by the Gators against a weary UK defense in the fourth quarter.



The last time UK beat Florida, a Jerry Claiborne-led 10-3 triumph over Galen Hall & Co. at Commonwealth Stadium during the Reagan Administration. The Gators have since chalked up 15 straight over the Cats.



The combined UK-Florida score in Steve Spurrier's 12 years with the Gators. The average score during that span: 44-18.
