- The latest AP Top 25 Poll has Kentucky football up to No. 7, the program’s highest AP ranking since 1977.
- The CBS Sports Power Rankings have Kentucky up to No. 8.
- Somehow, the SI Power Rankings don’t have Kentucky in the top 10 but do have Utah (10) and Tennessee (8) in there.
- Kentucky is up to No. 9 in the latest Bleacher Report Power Rankings.
Despite a so-so showing against Northern Illinois, the Kentucky Wildcats are rising in some of the latest college football rankings.
- The Coaches Top 25 Poll has Kentucky up to No. 8, while next week’s opponent, Ole Miss, is up to No. 11. Another future opponent, the Tennessee Volunteers, are up to No. 9, so Kentucky could have multiple top 15 matchups in the coming weeks.
- The ESPN Power Rankings bumped the Wildcats up to No. 6.
- Bill Connelly’s SP+ formula has Kentucky at No. 16.
- ESPN FPI still hates the Wildcats, putting them at No. 30. They’re one spot behind Michigan State, who just lost 34-7 at home to Minnesota, but ESPN doesn’t seem concerned with real, factual news.
Check back later for the AP Top 25 Poll among other new rankings.
A win is a win, and the Kentucky Wildcats are 4-0.
Following their narrow 31-23 win over Northern Illinois, the Wildcats will at least remain in the top 25 of the latest college football rankings. They’re probably lucky to remain in the top 10, but then again, that was one of the crazier weeks of college football in recent memory.
Keep track here to see where the Cats stand in the latest college football top 25 polls and power rankings.
