2017 SEC Country Power Poll: Where Kentucky is ranked (Week 14)

Kentucky finished the 2017 season at No. 9 in the final edition of the SEC Country Power Poll. The Wildcats went 7-5 and 4-4 in the SEC. Kentucky accepted a bid Sunday to play in the Music City Bowl against Northwestern.

The Music City Bowl kicks off at 4:30 p.m. ET at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tenn. It’s back-to-back bowl trips for the Cats after Kentucky missed the postseason from 2011-15.

“The Big Blue Nation has made Nashville a second home for us, and fan support is going to be so important as our team works for its eighth win,” athletic director Mitch Barnhart said in the official release. “Dec. 29 is going to be a big day for the University of Kentucky.”

The Kentucky basketball team plays Louisville at Rupp Arena earlier during that same afternoon.

Northwestern will pose a big test for Kentucky, finishing the season with seven consecutive wins and ranked No. 21 in the country.

“Kentucky has a long history with this game,” UK coach Mark Stoops said in a release, “and fans love going to Nashville. Taking on Northwestern will be a great challenge, and we look forward to an exciting game.”
