Florida players want to continue their dominance over Kentucky. The Wildcats are determined to snap their 26-game losing streak to the 20th-ranked Gators. 

Something has to give when the schools meet in Saturday night's Southeastern Conference game in Lexington, where Florida (2-1, 1-0) will try to regroup after a staggering week of season-ending injuries to key players. Kentucky (1-2) begins SEC play after a bye motivated to beat the Gators for the first time since 1986 and put an end to discussions about the losing streak. 

For added intrigue, former Kentucky coach Joker Phillips returns to face the school he led for three seasons before being fired last November. Phillips hasn't talked publicly about his return and the Wildcats have said their priority is beating the Gators.
