The Kentucky Wildcats still have twenty days until they kick off the 2020 season at Auburn on Saturday, September 26.

While there’s still weeks until the SEC season officially kicks off, Mark Stoops’ team is included in the first ESPN Power Rankings of the 2020 season.

ESPN’s Chris Low released the Week 1 power rankings with Kentucky checking in at No. 17.

“The Wildcats have finished. 500 or better three of the past four years in SEC play, a testament to the job Mark Stoops has done in Lexington. Their 2020 defense has a chance to be one of his best, led by linebackers DeAndre Square and Jamar “Boogie” Watson and massive nose guard Quinton Bohanna (6-foot-4, 357 pounds). This may be Stoops’ deepest team, with 20 starters returning. Much of Kentucky’s success will hinge on generating a more productive passing game. Quarterback Terry Wilson is back from a season-ending knee injury that he suffered in the second game a year ago.”
