Scouting the Florida-UK Game

We're going to switch things up a little bit this week with the Cat Scratches scouting preview. Instead of listening to me ramble on about what I think are the keys to the game, we're going to let you hear it from the people who are closest to the teams.

On Thursday at 4 p.m. EDT, we'll have Brett Dawson from The Courier-Journal and David Jones of Florida Today join us for a live chat to discuss Saturday's Florida-Kentucky game.

During the 30 to 45 minute segment, we'll ask the two beat reporters their thoughts on the matchup, what the keys are to the game, who fans should look out for and more. Fans are encouraged to join the interactive chat and send in questions as well.
