Kentucky’s wins over Texas A&M and Vanderbilt weren’t pretty, but with many Top 25 teams stumbling this week, the Cats climbed six spots to No. 12 in the new AP Poll.
The top ten remained the same, with Duke, Michigan, and Tennessee making up the top three. After back-to-back wins over Auburn and Mississippi State, Ole Miss is ranked for the first time since January 2013, coming in at No. 18. On the flip side, Mississippi State fell from No. 14 to No. 24. And North Carolina only fell one spot after losing to Louisville by 21 at home. Hmm.
