Kentucky moves up to No. 12 in Coaches Poll

Following back-to-back wins this past week over Mississippi State and on the road at Tennessee, the Kentucky Wildcats have moved up four spots in this week’s Coaches Poll.

After sliding out of the top 15 to No. 16 overall last week, the Wildcats moved up to No. 12, matching their spot in this week’s AP Poll announced earlier this afternoon.

With the jump, Kentucky is now the second-highest ranked team in the SEC, behind only Auburn at No. 11. With LSU now falling out of the top 25, AU and UK are now the lone ranked teams in the conference.

Check out the entire top 25, along with those receiving votes on the outside looking in:

What do you guys think of the rankings? Fair?

    So LSU drops out after losing to a top 15 Auburn on the road and Michigan State is still in there following 3 straight losses with 2 against unranked opponents. Makes perfect sense. They will inevitable be seeded higher than UK in the next bracketology as well. I’m shocked that UNC isn’t ranked after their “near miss” against Duke.

    I realize that LSU lost at Vanderbilt as well but the last time I checked 3 > 2, MSU losses vs LSU overall losses this week, and 2 > 1, MSU losses to unranked opponents vs LSU’s.

    And why did Auburn get bumped down?
