Kentucky Vs. Florida Score Update: Gators Lead 31-0 After 3rd Quarter

Everything is going the Florida Gators' way through three quarters against the Kentucky Wildcats. The Gators took a 24-0 lead into halftime after a 21-point second quarter. Now, Florida leads 31-0.

After going scoreless through most of the third, Florida scored again when sophomore quarterback Jeff Driskel made some plays with his feet. Driskel appeared to score a touchdown on a scramble in the red zone, dragging Kentucky defenders as he extended his arm toward the goal line.

But the ball was knocked from his hands and recovered by Quinton Dunbar in the end zone, which was originally ruled a touchdown. The call was overturned after review, but Driskel ran it in on the following play (after an offsides penalty on Kentucky) for his first rushing touchdown of the season. The score capped a 15-play, 72-yard drive that took over nine minutes off the game clock.
