Recap


Jeff Demps scored two touchdowns, including the longest TD run by a Florida player since Emmitt Smith, as the No. 15 Gators beat Kentucky 48-10 to log their 25th consecutive victory over the Wildcats.

Florida (4-0, 2-0 SEC) preserved its streak thanks to a 21-point onslaught in the first quarter that took less than five minutes off the game clock. The three TDs also gave the Gators 108 unanswered first-quarter points against Kentucky (2-2, 0-1 SEC), a run dating back to their 2007 meeting that the Wildcats finally broke up with a field goal at the end of the opening quarter.

Demps had a career-high 157 rushing yards on 10 carries, including an 84-yard jaunt in the third period that was the longest for a Florida player since Emmitt Smith scored from 96 yards out in 1988.

Chris Rainey ran for 105 yards, making he and Demps the first Florida duo to break 100 yards rushing simultaneously since Tim Tebow and Percy Harvin pulled it off in the 2009 BCS championship game. The Gators topped 400 yards on the ground as a team for the first time since 1989.

Kentucky moved the ball well at times, but turnovers knocked the Wildcats out of contention early. Two of Florida’s first four touchdowns came as a result of Kentucky miscues, including a three-yard fumble return to paydirt by Gators defensive lineman Jaye Howard with 11:30 to go in the first half.

A second-quarter pass from Morgan Newton to La’Rod King accounted for the Wildcats’ only touchdown. Newton also led the Wildcats in rushing.
