Kentucky Football’s Composite Preseason Ranking

Last week, Reddit compiled the rankings of Athlon Sports, ESPN and Bill Connelly from SB Nation to create a composite preseason ranking. Here is what they came up with:


Kentucky comes in at the #40 spot overall. Personally, I think that is a very fair ranking for the Cats. Kentucky came in ranked in 11th out of 14 SEC schools. The rankings for the teams the Cats will play this year is:

  • at #92 Southern Miss
  • vs. EKU
  • at #36 South Carolina
  • vs. #15 Florida
  • vs. #104 Eastern Michigan
  • vs. #48 Missouri
  • at. #29 Mississippi State
  • vs. #21 Tennessee
  • vs. #37 Ole Miss
  • vs. #54 Vanderbilt
  • at. #16 Georgia
  • vs. #14 Louisville

Some other notable rankings include: Alabama at #1, the defending champs Clemson at #5, and Western Kentucky at #69.

    i could be wrong, but i see UK at 12th out of 14, not 11th. behind AL, LSU, Auburn, FL, GA, TN, A&M, Miss. St., AR, SC, and Ole Miss.

    UK should go bowling this year easily. Also, I wouldn’t be shocked if they win 8 games.

    Looks like we should be favored in 6 games based on this list.

    We had 2 losses that could/should have been wins. UGA and Southern Miss. if Stoops is doing what he plans I cant imagine UK not getting over that hump this year. I’m predicting a top 25 rating at some point this season and finishing in the top 30.

    When was the last time we had no one in the top 10 on our schedule?
