Couch Kentucky came to Gainesville and brought heralded freshman Tim Couch, the No. 1-ranked prep prospect in the country the year before, to face the No. 1-ranked Gators.

Guess which No. 1 prevailed?

Make that dominated.

Couch (pictured left) worked mostly from the option and completed just six passes for 13. The Wildcats failed to make a first down in their first seven possessions.

Meanwhile, UF’s Jacquez Green returned consecutive punts for touchdowns and Danny Wuerffel threw three first-half TDs in a 65-0 laugher.

Florida’s point total nearly matched Kentucky’s total yards for the game (67).
