The New Mexico Lobos reaped the biggest benefits from wins in the first week of Mountain West Conference play but the San Diego St. Aztecs are still the highest ranked MWC team in the national polls released Monday morning.

The Aztecs climbed to No. 15 in this week's Associated Press poll and No. 14 in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches poll following wins at the Fresno St. Bulldogs and a home overtime victory over the Colorado St. Rams. SDSU moved up one spot in both the AP and Coaches poll.

Riding off the wave created by their home win over UNLV and a drubbing of Fresno State, the Lobos rose to No. 19 in the AP poll and re-entered the Coaches poll at No. 21 after spending a week unofficially ranked at No. 26. UNM was ranked No. 25 in the AP rankings last week.

The UNLV Runnin' Rebels fell out of the AP Top 25 following their 65-60 loss at UNM but hung on to their Coaches poll ranking at No. 23, down from No. 19 last week.

The Wyoming Cowboys still got votes in both polls despite their upset loss to the Boise St. Broncos last week, unofficially tied at No. 37 with one vote in AP and No. 32 unofficially in the Coaches poll with 13 votes. The Broncos benefited from their 63-61 buzzer-beating win over the Cowboys, moving to No. 36 unofficially in the Coaches poll with 2 votes.

The Louisville Cardinals are the new unanimous No. 1 after the Duke Blue Devils and Michigan Wolverines fell from the ranks of the undefeated. Indiana Hoosiers are unanimous No. 2. Duke fell to No. 3 in both polls and Michigan fell to No. 5 in both polls. The Kansas Jayhawks moved to No. 4 in both polls. up form No. 6 last week.
