The AP voters were big fans of the Kentucky Wildcats this week. In the latest week-five AP Poll, Kentucky came in at No. 17 in the nation, ahead of Texas, Oregon, BYU, Michigan State, Duke, Mississippi State, Cal, and Texas Tech to round out the top-25. It's the first time UK has been ranked in the AP Poll since 2007. The Cats sit behind Miami (No. 16), Wisconsin (No. 15), Michigan (No. 14), UCF (No. 13), and West Virginia (No. 12), among others. With the jump in ratings, Kentucky is considered the second-best team in the SEC East, behind only Georgia (No. 2), and the fifth-best team in the entire SEC. Only Alabama (No. 1), Georgia, LSU (No. 5), and Auburn (No. 10) are ahead of the Cats. The Coaches Poll also had Kentucky at No. 17 in the nation. [mobile_ad]
