Kentucky still at No. 15 in College Football Playoff Rankings

Kentucky’s spot in the College Football Playoff rankings remained the same this week despite some shakeups throughout the top 25. The Cats are at No. 15 for a second straight week after debuting at No. 9 in the first College Football Playoff rankings of the season last month.

Alabama (1), Clemson (2), Notre Dame (3) and Georgia (4) would be the four teams in if the playoff games were played today; however, Alabama and Georgia still play each other in the SEC Championship this coming Saturday.

Oklahoma (5) and Ohio State (6) are on the outside looking in, each with their own conference championships ahead.

Michigan (7), Central Florida (8), Florida (9) and LSU (10) make up the rest of the top 10.

1. Alabama (12-0)
2. Clemson (12-0)
3. Notre Dame (12-0)
4. Georgia (11-1)
5. Oklahoma (11-1)
6. Ohio State (11-1)
7. Michigan (10-2)
8. Central Florida (11-0)
9. Florida (9-3)
10. LSU (9-3)
11. Washington (9-3)
12. Penn State (9-3)
13. Washington State (10-2)
14. Texas (9-3)
15. Kentucky (9-3)
16. West Virginia (8-3)
17. Utah (9-3)
18. Mississippi State (8-4)
19. Texas A&M (8-4)
20. Syracuse (9-3)
21. Northwestern (8-4)
22. Boise State (10-2)
23. Iowa State 7-4)
24. Missouri (8-4)
25. Fresno State (10-2)

Fun fact: Five of Kentucky’s 12 opponents are in the top 25.

    Mishitgan should have dropped further than that. They were putrid and exposed. Just run crossing routes all game, they dont make adjustments.

    Texas will probably lose and UCF might w/o their QB but that’s a lot of ground to make up. Florida is nonsense. They lost 2 at home, to us AND Mizzou by 32 points! Their non conferences were about the same – 3 patsies and 1 bad ACC instate, MTSU was pretty good but FSU better the UL. Was beating #10LSU at home really better than beating (now) #9 on the road? Or was losing to PoS UT by 17 on road so much worse than losing to Mizzou at home? I get one spot or two one way or another but 9 v 15? WTF?

      I can’t help but wonder if we’d just showed up and lost close at UT instead of being embarrassed if that would’ve flip flopped our bowl games w Florida. Brutal.

    In my opinion, we should be #10 and Florida should be 11!

    BS, Cats have 3 wins against Top 25 teams. 2 are road wins. Only Bama, Notre Dame, and Georgia have 3 or more Top 25 wins.

    Look at you Missouri!! # 24. Good job. Heck the whole SEC is just brutal, and that expect we should be #10!! It’s been a fantastic year fellas, we’re just getting started though. Couldn’t be a better time to be a Wildcat!!

      Right on!! Every SEC team has a tougher schedule than any other team in America. SEC=the best, and it’s not even close.

    Now you see how important it was for us to beat Tennessee. It was that loss that kept us here. So it doesn’t matter now, but to where BBN will go. Hopefully the NCAA can see that we do travel well. Which means the dollars $$$$ will flow

    Penn State has zero top 25 wins. How are they 12th?

      This is the news from this poll. Penn State staying at 12 ahead of Washington State means they will get in the NY6 and Northwestern will be in the Citrus

    Losing that TN game with ZERO offensive display was a killer. Who wants to see that in a NY6 game? They’re just looking at the dollars spent on advertising and giving the advertisers the better bang for the buck. We take care of business like we should have and this would have been a non issue.

    And U.K. Is 3-2 vs the teams in top 25

    Washington and Washington State are absurd. The pac 12 is an embaressment to Power 5 football and complete garbage of a league.
