The Kentucky Wildcats are back on the rise.

The latest College Football Playoff rankings are out, and as expected, the Kentucky Wildcats got a slight bump.

Thanks a to a win over Middle Tennessee coupled with some losses by other top-25 teams, Kentucky moved up to No. 15, up two spots from No. 17 last week.

The Wildcats have a chance to keep moving up with a very winnable game against Louisville this week, while some teams ahead of them will face loseable games this week.

Florida will play a Florida State team that has to win to become bowl eligible. The Gators may be a top-15 team, but they’ve been very shaky over the last month, including a blowout home loss to Missouri, followed by a near-home loss to South Carolina.

Then you’ve got West Virginia facing Oklahoma this week. A mountaineers loss could drop them behind Kentucky.

Penn State plays Maryland, as the Terrapins have to win to become eligible following their near-upset of Ohio State last week.

Ohio State plays Michigan, but even if the Buckeyes lose, it’s hard to see them falling behind the Wildcats.

LSU plays at Texas A&M, and the Aggies are actually a two-point favorite.
