The Associated Press has released their midseason All-American teams, and two Kentucky Wildcats made it.

Linebacker Josh Allen was a first-team selection, while running back Benny Snell made the second team. Both players have been instrumental in Kentucky having one of its best starts in program history.

If they keep it up for six more games, the Wildcats could make it to Atlanta for the SEC Championship, and they both should be in the running for national awards.
