Watch Kentucky pull a trick field goal against Florida

Kentucky lost to Florida on Saturday, 24-7, for the 19th straight time in the series. A loss to Florida we expect any time Kentucky takes the field. What we rarely expect is for the Gators to get caught on the receiving end of a fake field goal that goes for a touchdown, with the kicker outrunning the Florida defensive players on special teams down the sideline.

That is exactly what happened in the first quarter in Lexington Saturday.

"It was something we worked all week," Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops said after the game. "We've been greasing it up. We felt like we had an opportunity where they had one guy and we had the option to run or throw that depending on what he did, whether he covered the guy that leaves for a pass. We felt if we could get the handoff or the toss, then we would have them in a bind."
