Kentucky is up to #8 in both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches' Polls that were released today. It's the first time UK has been ranked in the top 10 since 1977. (Some UK basketball fans will tell you it seems that long since the hoops team was ranked in the top 10.)
LSU took over the top spot in the AP Poll, which is where they belong. USC remained #1 in the coaches' poll.
Kentucky will get a chance to show they either belong in the top ten or are waaaay overranked when they face South Carolina, LSU, and Florida in consecutive weeks.
