After a 24-7 loss to the unranked Tennessee Volunteers, the Kentucky Wildcats drop eight spots to no. 20 in the newest Associated Press Top 25 poll. 

The Cats now sport a 7-3 overall record and 5-3 record in the SEC. Their losses come from Texas A&M, Georgia and now Tennessee.

Four SEC teams lie ahead of the Cats in the poll, as Alabama, Georgia, LSU and Florida all sit in the top 15. Mississippi State ranks 25th, who Kentucky beat earlier this season. 

Kentucky has two more games ahead of them in Middle Tennessee State University and Louisville. The Cats are set to play MTSU on Saturday in their last home game at noon, which is also senior day.
