Kentucky receives zero votes in latest AP Top 25

Another weekend of college football has come and gone, which means it’s time for an updated AP Poll of the nation’s top-25 teams. Once again, Kentucky did not make the cut.

That’s not too surprising, as the AP hadn’t included the Wildcats in their Top-25 list even before their gut-wrenching loss to Florida. However, it’s baffling Kentucky didn’t even receive a single vote. Saturday’s game against the No. 9 team in the nation came down to a “couple of inches,” as Coach Stoops likes to say. UK was winning for three quarters, and yet Florida remains in the top 10, while UK didn’t earn a single vote.

So far this season, Kentucky has only received two votes, and those came following week two.

Here’s a look at the entire list as we head into week four of the season:

  1. 1. Clemson
  2. 2. Alabama
  3. 3. Georgia
  4. 4. LSU
  5. 5. Oklahoma
  6. 6. Ohio State
  7. 7. Notre Dame
  8. 8. Auburn
  9. 9. Florida
  10. 10. Utah
  11. 11. Michigan
  12. 12. Texas
  13. 13. Penn State
  14. 13. Wisconsin
  15. 15. UCF
  16. 16. Oregon
  17. 17. Texas A&M
  18. 18. Iowa
  19. 19. Washington State
  20. 20. Boise State
  21. 21. Virginia
  22. 22. Washington
  23. 23. California
  24. 24. Arizona State
  25. 25. TCU

Kentucky’s next opponent, Mississippi State, did not make the cut but did receive 73 votes.

Now onto this week’s coaches poll, where Kentucky typically fares a bit better. That’s true again this week, as the Cats accumulated 14 votes from coaches across the country. 

Let’s hope the Cats use this as another piece of locker room motivation.

    Are you serious? A team that blew the lead, yet again, against UF in the 4th! As long as Eddie Gran runs the offense we will rarely, if ever, cover the spread. Leads will diminish. AJ Rose up the middle or to the right. Our kicker can’t hit chip shots from the right side of the field and that’s where Rose will set him up 100% of the time. 1st and 15 we will run it up the middle.

    All that most of the voters saw was the final score of 29-21 which doesn’t tell the whole story.
