Auburn moved up to #9 and Alabama to #15, making Kentucky the third highest SEC team in the poll. Tennessee and LSU also made the poll, making it 5 total SEC teams to represent the top 25.
Kentucky's opponent on Tuesday, LSU, dropped 5 spots to #21 following a road loss to Auburn. However, this will still serve as our first ranked opponent since our opening game of the season against Duke (currently #2).
