LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky held its ground in the SEC Country Power Poll after being off Saturday.
The Wildcats (3-3, 2-2 SEC) stayed at No. 10 in the poll, sandwiched in between Georgia at No. 9 and Mississippi State at No. 11.
The poll consists of 20 voters, including ones from SEC Country and around the nation.
Kentucky is tied with Tennessee for second in the SEC East after Vanderbilt’s upset divisional win against Georgia. Florida is the only East team with a conference record over .500.
Coach Mark Stoops’ squad faces Mississippi State (2-4, 1-2 SEC) at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Commonwealth Stadium. Mississippi State fell to BYU in double overtime on Friday.
The Bulldogs have bested the Wildcats seven times in a row in a series that dates back to 1914. Mississippi State beat Kentucky 42-16 last season in Starkville, Miss.
Kentucky was ranked No. 13 in the poll through three weeks and will look to go higher than 10th with a win against Mississippi State.
