The first edition of the college football top 25 coaches poll is out, and the Kentucky Wildcats got a whopping one vote to be in it.

To no surprise, Ohio State is the top-ranked team, but the top 15 has several SEC teams. Alabama leads the way with the No. 3 ranking, followed by Auburn at No. 7 and Georgia at No. 9. LSU also made the poll at No. 13 while Ole Miss came in at No. 15.

Arkansas (20), Missouri (23) and Tennesssee (25) rounded out the top 25 for the SEC. Of those aforementioned teams, Kentucky will face four of them.

Here's a look at the full poll:
