This was a week in which San Diego State put UNLV back in their place and fought off a scrappy Fresno State team to remain unbeaten in Mountain West conference play. It was also a week when other Top 10 teams came up short in their attempts at similar success. This translates into San Diego State moving from No. 10 to No. 7 in the AP Top 25 and No. 7 in the USA Today Coaches Poll. They are now 24-3 when ranked as a Top 10 team.
Wisconsin and Iowa State both lost twice last week while Oklahoma State lost by two points at Kansas. You could argue that Kansas made the most impressive move of the week, jumping seven spots from No. 15 to No. 8 with wins over two ranked teams: Iowa State and Oklahoma State.
Creighton and UCLA have been in and out of the Top 25 this season. This week they are both out again as Creighton lost to Providence and UCLA lost to Utah.
New Mexico received one vote in the AP.
