The first official top 25 poll of the 2020 college football season has arrived.

On Thursday, the USA Today Amway Coaches Poll was unveiled, which did not include the Kentucky Wildcats. However, Mark Stoops’ program did receive the fourth-most votes of teams outside the top 25. Tennessee actually had the most votes.

Looking at Kentucky’s schedule, we know they have top-25 matchups with Georgia (4), Florida (8), and Auburn (11). There could still be one or two more top-25 foes added to the schedule, depending on how the SEC chooses to add two extra conference games to the schedule. While it hasn’t happened yet, it’s expected to come out very soon, perhaps even as early as today.
