Virginia (16-3), Kansas State (18-3), Kansas (17-4), UCLA (17-4) and the Longhorns (17-4) round out the top 10.

Baylor (16-5) and Providence (17-5) made the biggest jumps this week, moving up six spots each. Baylor climbed to 11th while Providence is now No. 17.

Auburn took the biggest dive, dropping 10 spots to No. 25 after suffering two losses last week to Texas A&M and West Virginia.

Charleston and New Mexico dropped out of the rankings as Indiana (No. 21) and San Diego State (No. 22) made their way back in.
