Football season is right around the corner, and while many in Big Blue Nation are not sure exactly how good (or bad) the team will be, we do know that somewhere between Alabama (No. 1) and Georgia State (No. 126) lies your Kentucky Wildcats... Along with the rest of the college football world. To be more specific, CBS Sports ranks UK the 78th-best team in the country, just better than Ohio, but not quite as good as Rutgers. For what it's worth, both Ohio and Rutgers finished 9-4 last season, so that might be more of a disappointment for those teams than it is for two-win Kentucky. Kentucky's schedule looks like this. 1 -- Alabama 5 -- Georgia 7 -- South Carolina 9 -- Louisville 10 -- Florida 37 -- Vanderbilt 43 -- Tennessee 52 -- Missouri 49 -- Mississippi State 92 -- Western Kentucky 109 -- Miami (OH) (FCS) 53 -- Alabama State If you throw out the cupcake game against Alabama State, the average opponent ranking Kentucky will face this year is 37.6. If you throw out Louisville's FCS game against Eastern Kentucky, the Cardinals average opponent rankings will be 80.9... Lower than Kentucky - a team many experts predict will win between three and four games.
