The Kentucky Wildcats men’s soccer team has moved up to the No. 2 team in the country, per United Soccer Coaches. It’s the first time the program has ever been ranked in the top-2 in school history. Last week the team was the No. 3 ranked team and this week even received a first place vote.
The Wildcats boast a 8-0-2 record and are one of six unbeaten teams in the current Top-25, including No. 1 Washington, No. 3 Duke, No. 6 Portland, No. 13 Xavier and No. 22 Dayton.
Here is how the Top-25 rankings fall this week.
10 Wake Forest
15 Ohio State
21 Missouri State
23 UNC Greensboro
The Wildcats have wins over Belmont, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, James Madison, then-No. 10 Louisville, then-No. 21 Lipscomb, Seattle and the University of Illinois Chicago. Their two ties this season have come against then-No. 7 Marshall and then-No. 20 Tulsa.
Kentucky is scheduled to host No. 22 Dayton tonight at 7 PM in Lexington. They’ll then round out their schedule with a trip to West Virginia, home match vs. Coastal Carolina, trip to Indiana, home match vs. Old Dominion and a regular season finale at South Carolina.

What a day
Did anyone make it out to the concert last night?

Should he have been suspended?
Kentucky has one of the slowest pre-snap offenses in the country.
What are your immediate thoughts?
What a comeback.
Kroger Field has been packed so far this season.
This is a pretty significant list.
Guardians just couldn’t capitalize on offense.
