In life, there are things you know are going to happen.
The sun is going to rise in the east. Noise is going to come on the radio. Your kids are going to listen to the worst-possible music.
Oh, yeah. And Florida is going to have its way with the Kentucky football team.
It happened again Saturday. For the last 30 seasons in a row, Florida has beaten Kentucky, usually handily. This time, it was 45-7, and it seemed to indicate the Gators would be a factor in the SEC East battle once again.
Luke Del Rio, the Florida quarterback, had his second straight impressive game. He threw for four touchdowns, and his stat line of 19 of 32 passes for 320 yards was everything a Florida fan could want. It was the most yardage a Florida quarterback had thrown for since Chris Leak in 2004.
Receiver Antonio Callaway had five catches for 129 yards.
One of the most interesting days, however, was that of running back Lamical Perine, who ran for 105 yards.
On the afternoon, Kentucky’s receivers caught three passes; so did Florida’s secondary.
The Gators’ season faces an early test next week when it travels to Tennessee.
