Shortly after LSU clinched the ship in last night’s exciting Sugar Bowl, the Associated Press named its final Top 25 for the 2019 college football season. Your University of Kentucky Wildcats did not make the cut, but they did receive two votes! Thanks to those two people!

Here’s the final poll:

    It was a tough year for the FB cats, but I’m very proud of how they finished. Looking forward to next year.

    How in the hell the military schools keep making the top 25 is a joke

      Navy was good this year, and beat Kansas State in their bowl game. Last year, Army was good, and decimated Houston 70-14. Air Force beat Washington State in the Cheez it- Bowl.
      The military academies often play the triple option, and it can be hard to deal with.
      Ever hear of Roger Staubach? He played for Navy, and won the Heisman. Navy was ranked No. 2 in the nation, and lost the championship game to Texas.

    The real question is, where will Michael Drennon decide to commit to in the next week or two. Mark Stoops and Big Dog should be visiting him tomorrow. Hold onto your hats folks. USC’s class sucks and they are desperate to get him. Lets see if staying near to his Ohio home factors into his decision to pick Kentucky.

    I’m betting John Clay’s vote was not one of them.

    I just looked at John Clay’s voting history in the AP and he has not voted anyone in the conference lower than UK’s 1 below average of the other AP voters. On the other hand he has voted Tennessee, South Carolina, and Mississippi St 2 places above the average of the other voters. Go figure.
