For the first time since Week 4, Kentucky (15-0) was not the unanimous No. 1 pick in the weekly AP poll. After the Wildcats were taken to overtime in wins over Ole Miss and Texas A&M, Virginia (15-0) picked up two-first place votes and moved up to No. 2 in the Week 10 top 25. 

Duke (14-1), last week's No. 2, dropped to No. 4 after losing its first game of the season on Sunday, a 87-75 road defeat to NC State. Gonzaga (16-1) moved up to No. 3 and Villanova (15-1) jumped from No. 8 to No. 5.

Wisconsin (15-2) dropped three places to No. 7 after losing to Rutgers without senior center Frank Kaminsky, who sat out with a concussion. Arizona (14-2) also dropped three spots to No. 10 following a 58-56 defeat at Oregon State

Texas saw the largest fall in the rankings, going from No. 10 to No. 20 after losing to both Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Entering the poll this week is No. 23 UNI, No. 24 Oklahoma State and No. 25 Wyoming.
