Kentucky just got royally screwed by the AP voters.
After a 7-1 start overall and 5-1 in the SEC, the Wildcats moved up just one spot in the AP Poll to No. 11 in the nation.
Jumping them for the No. 10 spot? 7-1 Washington State, who moved up four (4!?!) spots after defeating No. 24 Stanford by a field goal with 19 seconds remaining on Saturday. Their lone loss came against an unranked USC team back in September.
To make matters worse, Ohio State, who is coming off a blowout loss against Purdue and a bye week, moved up three spots in the polls to No. 8. Huh?
As for the Cats, despite losing just one game (against Texas A&M at Kyle Field, nonetheless), they’ll have to wait till next week if they want to make a leap into the top-ten.
Alabama (No. 1), LSU (No. 4), and Georgia (No. 6) are the only SEC schools listed ahead of the Cats. Florida (No. 13), Mississippi State (No. 21), and Texas A&M (No. 25) round out the conference representatives in the top-25.

I guess they’ll just have to win the SEC East next week to convince the voters.
