This one is not going to be fun for Kentucky to review in film study.
With UK leading Florida 14-7 late in the first half on Saturday night, the Gators decided to go for it on a fourth-and-three play from the Wildcats’ 45-yard line. And before going out to run the play, UF decided to call a timeout to regroup.
That timeout also gave the Kentucky defense a chance to go over some things on the sideline. Leaving a receiver uncovered was probably not one of them.
You don't get more wide open than this…

Yeah… somebody forgot to cover Florida wideout Tyrie Cleveland. Feleipe Franks alertly noticed it pre-snap and quickly fired it over to Cleveland, who took off for a 45-yard touchdown to tie the score at 14-14.
Franks and Cleveland hooked up for the game-winning score as time expired last weekend against Tennessee.
This touchdown was way easier thanks to Kentucky’s blunder.
