LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — The Kentucky football team's winover LSU Saturday night has propelled the Wildcats to No. 11 in both the AP and Coaches Polls.

The win not only made the Cats (6-0) bowl-eligible, but has set up a showdown of undefeated teams next Saturday when UK heads down to Athens to take on the Georgia Bulldogs.

After Alabama's loss Saturday night at Texas A&M, UGA is now the top-ranked team in the country. The Bulldogs took care of business at Auburn 34-10.

UK and UGA are both 6-0 overall and 4-0 in the SEC and are the only undefeated teams remaining in the conference.

ESPN College Gameday and SEC Nation will both be in Athens for the game.

The kickoff is at 3:30 (Eastern time).
