College Basketball Rankings: UNLV No. 12, San Diego State No. 22

UNLV has been a big surprise this year by knocking of former No. 1 North Carolina to landing Pitt transfer Khem Birch and now they are ranked No. 12 in both the AP and Coaches Poll. This Saturday they take on San Diego State who is ranked No. 22 in both polls and will be one of the marquee matchups of college hoops. That game will be an early indicator of who will be the team to beat in the Mountain West.

New Mexico is also in the hunt to be ranked in both polls and are sitting just on the outside of each poll.
