Kentucky is one of three teams from the SEC ranked in the initial poll, joining Florida (10) and Tennessee (19).

UK is scheduled to play six games this season against teams that are in the preseason poll including two against No. 10 Florida, and once vs. No. 14 USC, No. 17 Purdue, No. 19 Tennessee and No. 25 Louisville.
