Kentucky moves up to No. 12 in the AP Poll, No. 14 in the Coaches Poll

The Kentucky Wildcats are going to have to wait another week if they want to find themselves in the top-ten.

The latest AP Poll has been released, and the Cats found themselves back up to No. 12 in the nation, a two-spot jump from last week.

It’s the highest Kentucky has been in the polls since they found themselves ranked No. 8 in October of 2007.

The only SEC teams ranked ahead of Kentucky? Alabama (No. 1), LSU (No. 4), Georgia (No. 7), and Florida (No. 9).

Check out the entire AP Poll here:

In the Coaches Poll, the Cats moved up to No. 14 in the nation, a three-spot jump from the week eight rankings.

You can find those here:

With a victory against Missouri on the road next weekend, the Cats would almost certainly make a jump into the top-ten, setting up a battle for a spot in the SEC Championship against Georgia on November 3.

    Florida a top 10 team? And Texas? The media is dying to bring these powers back

      With the way our offense has played since the second half of the South Carolina game, I very surprised we have moved up period! If anything I’d expect us to stay idle unless being beat or beating a quality ranked opponent. Do we as fan really think our team as a whole is the 12th best in the nation at this point?? I honestly believe if we were to play Florida today @Florida they’d beat us pretty handily. Our defense is great and one of the best in the nation but we’ve also got to be able to put points on the board. 18 yards passing against VANDERBILT folks. This is not worthy of our ranking in my opinion. Yes the defense and Benny deserve respect and praise, for we must clean up our passing game and keep defenses honest or we will be exposed again against Georgia and possibly Mizz on Saturday the same way Tx A&M exposed our offense in our only loss

      Texas A&M could use the same argument about UK.

      TX A&M couldn’t use the same argument because they have one more loss AND they didn’t beat UK on their home field.

    I am happy they moved up at all because of the lack of a passing game. If they beat MO Saturday perhaps a top 10 will happen.

    Do they really think Appalachian State is better than half of the teams in the SEC? Gimme a break!!!

    How is Florida ahead of us? We should have passed them.

    The media is all about brands. Michigan beats up a top 20 Wisconsin team and leaps from 15 to 5. Same with Florida and Texas. The writers are praying these teams keep winning so they can keep drinking the Kool-Aid. If UKs offense wasn’t so one dimensional the sportswriters would be giving them more respect.
