Week 11 FanPulse Update

How is the BBN feeling heading into Tennessee week?

The Kentucky Wildcats will be back in action this week after completing their second bye week, which came after they dominated a Missouri Tigers team who came to Lexington tied for the SEC East lead.

While Kentucky had the week off, several teams around the nation were in action, which led to some changes in this week’s SB Nation Fan Pulse top 25.

For the second straight week, LSU has found themselves in the top spot as they get ready to clash with No. 2 Alabama this weekend. There aren’t too many surprises in the national top 25 as there weren’t too many major upsets this past weekend.

As for Kentucky fans, they also kept the same No. 1 team for a second straight week, expect that team isn’t LSU. Here’s the BBN’s top 25.

  1. Alabama Crimson Tide (1 last week)
  2. LSU Tigers (2)
