LEXINGTON, Ky. (WDKY) - All three of Kentucky's offensive scoring plays in its 27-16 win over Florida were of 24 yards or more. Terry Wilson threw touchdown passes of 29 yards to David Bouvier and 54 yards to Lynn Bowden. Wilson also ran for a 24-yard touchdown.

Wilson says deep shots like that connection with Bowden against the Gators is something they work on every day in practice.

In the season opener against Central Michigan, Kentucky had a pair of rushing touchdowns of 50+ yards. Through two games, UK's three plays of 50 yards or more are tied for second most in the SEC. The Wildcats are sixth in the SEC in plays of 20 yards or more with 10.
