14. Kentucky Wildcats

Record: 1-1

Previous Ranking: 14 (Trend: — )

Last Week: Kentucky 41, Miami (Ohio) 7

This Week: vs. #7 Louisville

Next Week: vs. Florida


In a game some (me) thought Kentucky would lose, the Wildcats romped past Miami (Ohio) to give Mark Stoops his first win at Lexington.

Kentucky showed flashes of a legit passing game as Maxwell Smith threw for three touchdowns and 310 yards on just 15 completed passes. This bolstered what ended up being 675 yards worth of offense for the ‘Cats. Maintaining those numbers in the SEC is not doable for Kentucky right now, but by the end of the season they could be able to pull of a surprise win if they can continue to develop the passing game.

Things are going to get ugly again pretty quick as the Wildcats will host Louisville and Florida, travel to South Carolina, and then host Alabama over the next four weeks. Yikes. Enjoy the victory while you still can, Kentucky fans.
