Fresh off its weekend series win over #19 Florida, the Kentucky baseball team entered a new week of polls with some Uncle Mo.
USAToday, who has been hesitant to jump on the UK bandwagon thus far, finally put the 25-8 Cats at #24, leapfrogging the Gators. Combined with the arrival of fellow SEC member Georgia in the top 25, a staggering eight conference teams -- out of just 12 possible -- are in the top 25.
I guess it's safe to say the SEC is the nation's best conference for baseball right now? Certainly its most prolific.
Baseball America puts the Bat Cats at #19.
Collegiate Baseball was less kind, keeping UK at the #25 spot for the second straight week.
Additionally, for the fourth time in six weeks, the Cats had the SEC's Player of the Week. This week's winner: Sean Coughlin.
All in all, a great week -- and continuing great year -- for Kentucky baseball.
Up next: A weekend road trip to face the consensus top 15 Arkansas Razorbacks.
