After rising to No. 8 in the AP Poll, Kentucky is back in the Top 10 of the Coaches Poll as well. The Cats jumped five spots to No. 9, just ahead of Saturday’s opponent, Kansas.

The top three are the same as the AP Poll: Tennessee, Duke, and Virginia. The Vols received 30 of the 32 first-place votes. After losing to Kentucky, Auburn fell three spots to No. 15. Here are both polls side by side for comparison:
