CBS Sports released their rankings of all 130 teams in college football yesterday. Where did your Kentucky Wildcats end up? Just outside the top 50 at No. 51, behind Minnesota and ahead of Baylor. Here’s where the Cats landed in comparison to the rest of the SEC:
36. Mississippi State
41. Texas A&M
42. South Carolina
56. Ole Miss
So, fifth in the SEC East behind Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, and South Carolina, just as the media predicted at SEC Media Days. Comparatively, Kentucky is 35th in ESPN’s Football Power Index rankings, ahead of Ole Miss, Arkansas, Missouri, and Vanderbilt.
Maybe it’s all the KyWildcatTV hype videos talking, but 35th sounds a lot more realistic than 51st. Thoughts?
