Kentucky could face two top-three teams in a one-week span.
The Cats stayed at No. 8 in the new AP Poll. Ohio State, Kentucky’s opponent in the CBS Sports Classic on Dec. 21, moved up from No. 6 to No. 3 while Louisville, who will come to Rupp Arena on Dec. 28, remains the No. 1 team in the country. After losing to Duke, Michigan State dropped from No. 11 to No. 16. So much for that marquee win.
Two other SEC teams made the top 25: Auburn at No. 12 and Tennessee at No.
