Kentucky Once Again Making a Push for the Top 10 in Both Major Polls

The Kentucky Wildcats (19-6) are making a push for the top 10 once again following an impressive week. 

Kentucky is No. 14 in both the AP Top 25 and USA Today Coaches Poll this week. Wins over Tennessee and Texas A&M would likely propel the Wildcats into the top 12 next week.

Louisville is No. 18 in the AP poll but is not ranked in the coaches top 25.
