Lexington, KY (Sports Network) - Jeff Demps rushed for 157 yards and two touchdowns to lead a spectacular ground attack, and No. 15 Florida had no trouble with SEC foe Kentucky in a 48-10 victory on Saturday. Chris Rainey gained 105 yards on the ground and John Brantley passed for 115 yards and a touchdown for the Gators (4-0, 2-0 SEC), who beat the Wildcats for the 25th straight time. Morgan Newton threw for 124 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions for Kentucky (2-2, 0-1), which has dropped two in a row after opening the season with back-to-back wins. Florida gained 405 yards on 46 carries by nine players, the sixth-best rushing performance in school history. Behind Demps, Rainey and Mike Gillislee, who rushed for 84 yards, the Gators rushed for more yards than in any game since compiling 466 against New Mexico in 1989. Their 25 consecutive victories over Kentucky ranks fourth all-time in the country among major conference opponents in a current series that is played annually. The Wildcats havent beaten the Gators since a 10-3 win in 1986 and they never sniffed an upset in this one. Florida built a 21-3 lead in the first quarter. A fumble by Kentuckys Josh Clemons led to Brantleys 45-yard touchdown pass to Gerald Christian and the Gators upped the lead to 14-0 on Demps 20-yard run on their next possession. Matt Elam then intercepted Newton, returning it 18 yards to the Kentucky 28, and Raineys 27-yard run set up a one-yard TD run by Trey Burton. The Wildcats responded with a 24-yard field goal from Craig McIntosh to pull within 21-3. But the Gators kept their foot on the pedal, taking a 28-3 lead early in the second when defensive tackle Jaye Howard recovered Newtons fumble near the goal line for a touchdown. Caleb Sturgis kicked a 45-yard field goal for a 31-3 lead before Kentucky turned a fumble into Newtons 19-yard touchdown pass to LaRod King with 1:18 left in the first half. They were the last Wildcat points. Demps scored on an 84-yard run in the third quarter and Sturgis kicked a 27- yard field goal later in the frame that was set up by a Newton interception. Gillislee broke off a 60-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter for the final score. The Gators have outscored their first four opponents of the season 161-36.
