LEXINGTON Ky. - With the first Bowl Championship Series rankings issued Sunday, we took a look at the strength of schedule listed by the computer ratings used by the BCS.
Kentucky has played the nation’s toughest schedule according to Anderson and Hester, Colley Matrix and Massey ratings. The Sagarin Ratings have UK at No. 5 in strength of schedule. (The Billingsley and Wolfe ratings do not display a strength of schedule.)
The seven teams that have played Kentucky have a combined record of 37-7, with three of the opponents still undefeated and three having only one loss.
UK will play its fifth ranked opponent of the season Sunday when the Wildcats play host to the Georgia Bulldogs. This is only the second time in school history that UK has played five ranked opponents in the first eight games.
