The Kentucky Wildcats missed the top-25 by just a hair in the latest week-four Coaches Poll.
Receiving 98 overall votes, Kentucky is listed at No. 26 in the rankings, ahead of the likes of Duke (55), South Florida (45), Colorado (41), South Carolina (40), and Iowa (36), among others.
They’re also ranked ahead of future SEC foes Missouri, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt, along with past foe, Florida.
Mississippi State, Kentucky’s opponent next week, moved up to No. 14, while Texas A&M, UK’s week-six matchup, came in at No. 22. Georgia is the only other ranked opponent on Kentucky’s scheduled, coming in at No. 3 for the third consecutive week.
If the Cats can pull off an upset victory next weekend, you better believe they’ll be jumping into the top-20 going into the South Carolina game.
Let’s make it happen.
