Kentucky’s 4-0 start resulted in the program’s first ranking since 2007, and also, a LOT of land in SB Nation’s College Football Empires Map.
After beating Mississippi State, the Cats took over the Bulldogs’ land and the territories of Kansas State and Louisiana Lafayette, whom Mississippi State beat earlier this season. Kentucky now has six territories, which is tied for the fourth most with LSU and Notre Dame. Alabama, Stanford, and Oklahoma have the most with seven each.
