The first AP poll of the season was just released and your University of Kentucky Wildcats are part of it. Technically.
While the Cats didn’t crack the Top 25, they did receive three votes, the same as Texas A&M. Read it and weep:
|2||Ohio State (3)||1414|
|3||Florida State (4)||1396|
Others receiving votes: TCU 98, Utah 85, Notre Dame 65, Boise State 37, NC State 26, Northwestern 25, Pittsburgh 23, Oregon 21, Houston 19, Colorado 18, San Diego State 9, UCLA 9, BYU 5, Appalachian State 4, Nebraska 4, Tulsa 4, Kentucky 3, Texas A&M 3, Michigan State 1
According to UK, it’s the first time the Cats have received votes in the AP Poll since October of 2015.
You know what? I’ll take it.
