  Trevin Wallace returned a blocked field goal 76 yards for the go-ahead touchdown late in the third quarter, Chris Rodriguez Jr. had a 9-yard scoring run early in the fourth and Kentucky made a final defensive stand to hold off No. 10 Florida 20-13 on Saturday night. The Southeastern Conference East Division showdown was more of a slog than a slugfest for much of the night, and the Gators (3-2, 1-2) were poised to add Jace Christmann's 48-yard field goal attempt to their 10-7 lead. Kentucky defensive end Josh Paschal got a hand on the low kick that sent the ball fluttering the line to Wallace, who jetted past a tackle on the left sideline and cut back through a small seam to race for the game-changing TD.

The Wildcats (5-0, 3-0) turned it over on downs at the Florida 34 to start the fourth quarter but created another opportunity when linebacker J.J. Weaver intercepted Emory Jones' pass for a first down at the Gators 29. Rodriguez took over from there, rushing three times for 22 yards including the 9-yard TD for a 20-10 cushion with 11:32 remaining. Florida got within seven on Christmann's 33-yard field goal with 6:23 left before getting the ball again a couple of minutes later and driving to the Kentucky 5 with the help of a defensive facemask penalty. A 4-yard loss on a pass play and false start penalty moved the Gators back to the 14, but they had a final chance from the 8 before Jacquez Jones swatted away a fourth-down pass with 18 seconds left to seal the win. Fans stormed the field as Kentucky beat Florida at home for the first time since 1986 and took a big step toward challenging Georgia in the East. - Kentucky/AP College Football

  University of Kentucky defensive end Josh Paschal's battle with cancer has been well-documented across the nation, including by NBC's "Today" in May 2019. Paschal, who was diagnosed with a malignant melanoma ahead of the 2018 season, earlier this month during an episode of "Behind Kentucky Football" talked about his experience on "Today." He recounted details of that experience again Tuesday while on the podium at SEC Media Days. The highlight? Meeting multimedia star Jennifer Lopez, who was performing on the show that day. "I'll set the scene for everybody, all right? I was outside the dressing room because all the famous people and the actual commentators are right there," Paschal said. "So J. Lo keeps coming in and out. So my mom, she keeps fan-girling and everything. She loves J. Lo. And I'm like, all right, it's not that big of a deal, but in my mind, I'm thinking, 'It's J. Lo, it's J. Lo, it's J. Lo." "I keep seeing her. So she's changing, because she's performing that day. She's changing, and she's coming back, and she's walking up the stairs, and I just look up. I was looking at the stairs, and I look up, and we make complete eye contact. And she winked at me. I hope that wink was real because I've been telling this story ever since it happened. When I tell you 'I melted,' I melted."

Paschal was able to return to the field at the end of the 2018 season and has since remained cancer-free. He has started 25 of the 40 games in which he's played at Kentucky, and will lead a defensive front this season that's otherwise lean on experience and looking to bounce back from a lackluster effort in terms of pass-rushing production, especially compared to the years prior. - Herald Leader

  Kentucky coach Mark Stoops expects junior defensive end Josh Paschal to be available for the Wildcats' game at Tennessee on Saturday. "He's day to day," Stoops said at his Monday news conference. "He'll be out there at some point this week. We'll be glad to have him back when he's ready. Nothing major there." Paschal did not play in the second half against Mississippi State after suffering a knee injury shortly before halftime. Before the injury, Paschal grabbed his first career interception and returned it 76 yards to set up a 2-yard touchdown run from UK running back Chris Rodriguez. On the season, Paschal, who moved from outside linebacker to defensive end during the offseason, has totaled 12 tackles, two tackles for loss and one interception. "The first two games he was our defensive player of the week, so that tells you what we think of him and the way he's playing," Stoops said after UK's 24-2 win over Mississippi State. "He's done some really good things. He's been disruptive all year." - Courier Journal
