Kentucky Is Set To Face Three Teams In ESPN’s Top 25

In 2013 the rebuilding Cats were faced with taking on #1 Alabama, #5 Georgia, #7 South Carolina, #9 Louisville, #10 Florida and #26 Vandy in a year that saw them go 2-10. Last season the outlook was a little bit brighter with only 3 preseason ranked teams on the schedule made up of #9 South Carolina , #12 Georgia. and #13 LSU from this season. The Cats went 5-7 and were just a few plays away from going  bowling.

How’s the outlook for this season? Well today ESPN released their power rankings of the top 25 teams in the country and the outlook is again pretty favorable for the Cats. Just three teams of the top 25 are on their schedule and two of them they get to play at home.

#3 Auburn

#10 Georgia

#24 Tennessee

Their expert rankings are pretty close to the USA Today coach’s poll from a couple of weeks ago. The only major difference is Missouri making an appearance in the Coach’s poll at #23. Bottom line, the East is still way down (especially in comparison to the 6 ranked teams from the West) and primed for the Cats to make a move this season. How do you think Kentucky will fare against these three ranked teams?

    If UofL was ranked were they should be (#1 in the country), you would have four on that schedule.

    I believe UK needs to win one of these three to go bowling and I believe they will. 1-2 against ranked opponents and 5-4 against the rest. I think we sneak back into a bowl game this year.
