USA Today Top 25 Coaches Poll and AP Poll: Louisville weathers Kentucky game

Andy Lyons

Afraid Louisville would be punished by poll voters for not being Kentucky by more? Don't be. The Cardinals remained number seven in the AP Poll and moved up to number six in the Coaches Poll

If you were worried about Louisville 27-13 win over Kentucky being used to penalize Louisville in the polls, you worried in vain. Yes, the Cardinals lost a few points in the Associated Press poll, but they remained at number seven. In the USA Today Coaches Poll, Louisville moved up another spot to number six.

Louisville still is unlikely to face a ranked team in 2013, but UCF did earn some votes after winning at Penn State yesterday. This week they'll have another opportunity to impress when they face #13 South Carolina.
