Wildcats consolidate top spot of top dogs for third time

AUGUSTA — A pair of Kentucky football teams with high expectations have a much simpler challenge as the season ends: getting into the top four of the state and into the state championship game.

Cincinnati and Louisville are ranked No. 10 and 12 in the latest USA TODAY College Football Coaches Poll released Thursday. The next-best teams in the poll were No. 8 Duke, No. 5 Wisconsin, No. 10 Florida State and No. 11 Michigan.

«The people that are going to pick us, who 스카이 파크 카지노I like and respect, are going to pick us,» said quarterback Ricky Stanzi, a three-time all-ACC player. «If the other people that are picking us weren’t making that decision, I’d like to think I could win a national championship.»

Stanzi and junior safety John Williams are the only two top-ranked football teams in the poll.

The Bengals and Tigers both finished the season ranked among the nation’s top 10 in both scoring offense and total offense. Both teams made significant changes this off-season. In fact, Clemson was eliminated from the Associated Press poll and Louisville was promoted to the AP Top 25.

Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris also lost his job at Miami. Cincinnati offensive에스 카지노 coordinator Tony Franklin lost his job at Wake Forest.

Cincinnati’s best season came in 2012, when the Bengals went 25
