GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - No. 20 Kentucky intercepted Anthony Richardson twice, Keidron Smith returned one of those interception 65 yards for a touchdown, and the Wildcats toppled 12th-ranked Florida 26-16 in the Swamp. It’s the first time Kentucky has won back-to-back in the series in 45 years. Richardson was off all night, a stark contrast from last week’s three-touchdown, turnover-free performance against then-No. 7 Utah.
