Saturday night was Kentucky’s first SEC victory by at least 20 points since 1998. But the monumental win only saw the ‘Cats bumped up three spots in one of two national polls.

The USA Today AFCA Coaches Poll Top 25 was updated on Sunday afternoon and Kentucky (6-0) came in at No. 11. UK was ranked No. 14 before doubling up the LSU Tigers, 42-21, last night.

Kentucky’s opponent next weekend, the Georgia Bulldogs are now the top-ranked program in the entire country, according to the Coaches Poll. Other ranked SEC teams include Alabama (No. 5), Ole Miss (No. 14), Florida (No. 17), Texas A&M (No. 18), and Arkansas (No. 19).

It won’t be a top-10 matchup in Athens next weekend, but it sure will have the hype of one.
