Updated Bracketology Has Kentucky as 4 or 5 Seed

Friday afternoon brought us some fresh updates across the Bracketology world and Kentucky finds themselves in familiar territory.

ESPN’s Joe Lunardi has the ‘Cats as a five-seed according to his Bracketology while Andy Katz has Kentucky as a four-seed in his predictions just 50 days out from Selection Sunday. In their most recent updates, Lunardi had Kentucky as a five-seed while Katz put them as a four-seed, as well.

Lunardi has UK facing Vermont in the East region while Katz slots them against Stephen F. Austin in the Midwest region.

Following back-to-back wins over Arkansas and Georgia, Kentucky has crept back into form as a serious contender. While they didn’t receive a bump in the seedings from the national media, the ‘Cats are in the midst of hitting their stride at a good time in the season.

As for Kentucky’s opponent for Saturday, the Texas Tech Red Raiders, Katz has them as an eight-seed while Lunardi is saying a nine-seed. Keep in mind, Kentucky is ranked just three spots above Texas Tech in the AP poll. Rankings are confusing.

    Best case scenario, we get a 3. But most likely will be a 4 or 5

    Butler was top 10 a couple weeks ago and have dropped 3 straight. These small programs aren’t great. Let UK play San Diego states schedule. Gimme a break.

    San Diego State a 1 Seed? LMAO

    Overrated!

    They’ll be the second 1 Seed to fall to a 16 seed.

    Who have the Aztecs played to warrant such a high seed?
