Gators' short-yardage problems could be helped this week vs. Kentucky



One of the areas Florida coach Will Muschamp has targeted for improvement is short-yardage gains. 

The Gators are 4-of-17 on third-down conversions of four yards or fewer. 

But Saturday's game against Kentucky might provide some relief, based on the Wildcats' performance so far.

According to Lexington Herald-Leader columnist John Clay, Kentucky's opponents are 11-of-14 on third or fourth-down conversions with four of fewer yards.

Check out Clay's full statistical breakdown on the Wildcats' struggles with containing short yardage gains.
