Following a wild week of college hoops, Oklahoma is the new No. 1 team in the country.
The Sooners received 26 first-place votes this week after Oklahoma State on the road and now-No. 7 West Virginia at home. Behind Oklahoma, North Carolina is No. 2 with four first-place votes, and Kansas is No. 3 with one. Villanova and Maryland round out the top-five.
None of those teams particularly moved far in one direction or the other. However, there was quite a bit of movement throughout the rest of the poll. Iowa, now No. 9, was the biggest mover, rising 10 spots. Baylor jumped up seven spots to No. 15. Texas A&M is now No. 8 after rising six places.
With those rises, there were plenty of falls as well. Duke, following two losses this week to unranked teams, fell six spots to No. 12. Kentucky, who lost to Auburn over the weekend, also fell six spots to No. 19. Both Providence and Miami (Fla.) fell five spots each, to No. 17 and No. 15 respectively.
Despite those losses though, there is only one newly ranked team. USC replaced Gonzaga in the poll after the Trojans won at UCLA last week and the Bulldogs fell at home to BYU. Southern Cal is now 15-3 on the season.
