Rivals ranks the top football uniforms in the SEC, Kentucky listed near bottom

by:Jack Pilgrim05/26/20

The Kentucky football program has been experimenting with new uniform and helmet combinations since the start of the Mark Stoops era, but according to the fine folks at Rivals, it’s not enough to put the Wildcats in the upper tier of the Southeast Conference.

In fact, in a recent ranking of best uniforms in the SEC, Rivals listed Kentucky at No. 11 overall and No. 6 in the SEC East.

Here was their ranking:

  1. LSU
  2. Georgia
  3. Tennessee
  4. Florida
  5. Alabama
  6. Missouri
  7. Vanderbilt
  8. Ole Miss
  9. Auburn
  10. Texas A&M
  11. Kentucky
  12. South Carolina
  13. Mississippi State
  14. Arkansas

Among 65 Power Five teams, the trio of Rivals experts – Mike Farrell, Adam Gorney, and Woody Wommack – all listed Kentucky lower than No. 35 overall, with Farrell putting UK at No. 42, Gorney at No. 40, and Wommack at No. 36.

While the ranking certainly isn’t favorable, Rivals did compliment UK’s unique combinations and chrome helmets.

“Kentucky has done a nice job of making things cool especially with the chrome helmets that pop with the blue uniforms,” Farrell said. “The traditional uniforms and helmets are nice but the combinations really intrigue me.”

Do you think Kentucky has the fourth-worst uniforms in the SEC?
