Halftime Report--All Gators, Florida 49 Kentucky 7

Aided by an early blocked punt, Kentucky went 16 yards for an early 7-0 lead just 2:46 in the first quarter. It was the first time in 39 quarters that an Urban Meyer-team has trailed. The lead would not hold up, however, as Florida followed with seven straight touchdowns to lead 49-7 at halftime.

Behind Chris Leak's four touchdown passes, the Gators lead the Wildcats 49-7 at the half. The Cats have been unable to apply any pressure on Leak, and he has torched the Cats secondary for almost 300 yards through two quarters. Leak is 21-26, 298 yards, and four touchdowns. The Gators have more than 400 yards of offense.

The Wildcats have been unable to maintain any offensive momentum. After the early UK 7-0 lead, courtesy of a 16-yard scoring drive after the early blocked punt, the Gators have dominated on both sides of the ball. Andre Woodson is 5-16, 44 yards, 2 interceptions, and the UK running game has only 16 yards rushing. The Gators also capitalized on a third UK turnover, a Jacob Tamme fumble after one of the few pass receptions UK has had in the game.

Florida has 22 first downs to Kentucky's four, and the Gators have dominated the ball control game, with more than 21 minutes in the first half in time of possession. Gators also have 21 offensive plays to the Cats' 26, and have not punted in the game, outgaining the Cats 433 yards to just 69.
