Kentucky football is finally receiving preseason respect for the first time in the Mark Stoops Era.
Earlier this spring, Sporting News included Kentucky in their post-spring top 25 rankings for the 2020 season. Kentucky was listed at No. 23, ahead of UCF and Boise State.
Now, another outlet is giving the Wildcats preseason recognition. Pro Football Focus released their too-early preseason rankings and Kentucky checks in at No. 20. Below is what they had to say about the Wildcats.
After a really strange season in 2019, the Wildcats return a decent amount of talent in 2020 and should be competitive again in the SEC.
Kentucky plays five teams in the preseason PFF rankings.
No. 5 Georgia
No. 6 Florida
No. 10 Auburn
No. 19 Tennessee
No. 25 Mississippi State
