Last week, several of the top-ranked teams lost, which meant many changes when the new polls were released today. Purdue fell last Monday night in a close one to Wisconsin, 74-69, giving the Boilermakers their second loss, and propelling Wisconsin up in the polls. On Saturday, then #2 Duke fell to Miami in a nail biter, 76-74, while #25 Texas Tech beat Kansas 75-67. 

Baylor rolled in their two conference games last week and remain the unanimous top pick in both polls. Baylor and USC are the only two ranked teams still undefeated. USC is now ranked #5, it's highest ranking since 1974.

The Big 12 continues to have five teams ranked (Baylor, Kansas, Iowa State, Texas Tech, and Texas) with both Oklahoma and West Virginia getting votes.

Here are the highlights from both the AP Top 25 and the Coaches Poll:
