While their 34-17 loss to Georgia Saturday dropped Kentucky from the SEC Championship game race, it only dropped them one spot in the latest Associated Press and Coaches’ football polls.
The Wildcats are ranked 12th in both polls. They were 11th in last week’s AP Poll and 12th in the Coaches’ Poll.
Georgia moved up to No. 5 in the AP Poll, which is where they were ranked in the Coaches’ Poll last week.
Alabama remains ranked No. 1 followed by Clemson, Notre Dame, and Michigan in the top four of both polls.
Some early bowl projections have the Wildcats either playing No. 11 Central Florida in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl Jan. 1 or No. 7 West Virginia in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Dec. 29.
