A great matchup in Gainesville lifts off just hours before Super Bowl 51 and should wet your whistle in a busy sports weekend leading up to the biggest game on the planet. Both teams have had some recent success, but the Wildcats have also been struggling way more than they should be at this point of the season. At least a share of first place in the SEC will be on the line when these two tangle Saturday Night.

Both teams want and need this game, but I think the young Wildcats need it more as if they can go into the hostile environments and win their second in a row after a couple of losses, they will be feeling much better than they were a week ago coming off the losses to Tennessee and Kansas.

The Gators have been destroying teams lately and have three straight wins of 30 points or more, so the Cats task will not be easy but these are the spots an ultra talented team can come up big in a quasi late season contest. Look for a huge game from Kentucky Super Frosh Malik Monk and for the Wildcats defense, which really let them down against Kansas last Saturday, and come up big against the Gators.
