The Wildcats (18-5, 8-2) will go into perhaps their toughest test of the season just inside the top 15. Kentucky hosts No. 3 Florida on Saturday night, and ESPN’s College GameDay will visit during the day and broadcast from Rupp Arena in preview of the big game.


Cincinnati was the only top-10 team to lose last week, and the Bearcats fell from No. 7 to No. 10 following their 76-55 road loss to SMU. Kentucky overstepped Creighton and Michigan in the rankings following losses from both teams.
