Benny Snell set the USA Today’s College Football Preview on fire (literally) last summer when he learned his Wildcats earned a No. 71 overall ranking by the publication.
He might want to get that lighter out again.
In a post-spring ranking of every college football team, USA Today writer Paul Myerberg has the Cats at No. 73 this year, down two spots from the official preseason ranking last year.
The 73rd overall ranking lands Kentucky in the 12th place spot in the Southeastern Conference, ahead of only Ole Miss and Vanderbilt.
See Myerberg’s rankings for each SEC team below:
21. Mississippi State
24. South Carolina
31. Texas A&M
76. Ole Miss
And here are three of UK’s 2018 non-conference opponents:
64. Middle Tennessee
107. Central Michigan
You know what to do, Benny.
