NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

The Kentucky Wildcats traveled to Gainesville last weekend and defeated the 12th-ranked Florida Gators. So, to celebrate, they made themselves a very appropriate meal.

Kentucky starting quarterback Will Levis posted a photo on his Instagram Story Monday night showing a half-eaten alligator the team dined on.

It’s pretty obvious this is a Florida mascot play, which the Wildcats don’t mind taking on like they did on the field Saturday.

The Wildcats held the Gators scoreless in the second half after being downed after the first and collected 13 of their own points to defeat them, 26-16.

Levis went 13 for 24 for 202 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He also had a quick score.

Florida’s highly talented quarterback Anthony Richardson wasn’t as sharp as he was against the University of Utah, where he had three rushing touchdowns on 11 carries and 106 yards.

Richardson was stopped on the ground, having six carries for just four yards, as Kentucky forced him to throw. He was highly inefficient, going 14 for 35 for 143 yards with two interceptions. Trevor Etienne had the lone touchdown for the Gators on the ground.
