Last night USA Today re-ranked every team in college football and the Cats were one of the biggest movers as they rose 24 spots to be ranked 41st. Now, the folks over at the Bleacher Report are beginning to show Kentucky some love as well in today’s power rankings for week 3 of college football.
In their rankings the Cats have jumped 11 spots to be ranked 49th. More importantly for the season outlook however is the fact that nearly every single on of Kentucky’s opponents have slid from their initial ranking. Only Georgia and Charlotte have risen from their preseason outlook while other teams (::cough:: Louisville ::cough::) have dropped 21 spots.. That’s good news for us Cat fans. Here’s how every remaining opponent shook out:
7. Georgia (2-0), up 2
18. Auburn (2-0), down 12
24. Missouri (2-0), down 2
25. Tennessee (1-1), down 1
29. Mississippi State (1-1), down 3
44. Florida (2-0), down 6
49. Kentucky (2-0), up 11
53. Louisville (0-2), down 21 (lol)
85. Vanderbilt (0-2), down 2
123. Charlotte (2-0), up 5
[Bleacher Report: College Football Power Rankings for Week 3]
Kentucky’s remaining FBS schedule has a record of 12-6 but I’m going to go on the record right now that you can add 9 more marks to that loss column. Hey, a guy can dream.
What do you think of B/R’s updated rankings?
