Kentucky picked up votes in Coaches Poll

Kentucky did not find itself in the Top 25, but the Wildcats did earn some recognition in this week’s Amway Coaches Poll after receiving six votes from the panel.

Four teams on the Cats’ schedule made the Top 25: Georgia (15), Louisville (16), Tennessee (21) and Florida (25).

Kentucky would be tied with Minnesota at No. 43 if the poll were extended to include all teams receiving votes. South Carolina, the Week 3 opponent, would be No. 42.

Go Cats.

    Great. The year we beat UF they wont even be ranked. We will likely be in top 25 so a win will be looked at “supposed to happen”

      At this point I don’t care if we beat Florida because their starters sat out in protest of the end of DACA.

      Yea, I agree. Just sux that there will always be a “well, we had x players out” i wish they had all their players and were top 25 coming to Kroger Field bc i do feel this year we could take them at full strength. We got the depth and talent.

      No one will remember what players they had or what they were ranked. They just won’t talk about the streak every single year.
