A new face in the Mountain West is getting some recognition.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

There aren't many changes for the Mountain West in this week's Associated Press top 25 poll.

The Colorado State Rams (13-0), ranked 24th last week, are once again pinned at No. 24 with 194 votes, just 22 votes from the No. 23 Northern Iowa Panthers. CSU played two games this past week, beating the Charleston Southern Buccaneers 75-54 and barely scraping out a 58-57 overtime win at New Mexico State.

CSU is also ranked 24th in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

The San Diego State Aztecs (10-3), out of the top 25 last week, remained unranked this week, receiving with 28th-most votes with 40 -- 100 votes from the No. 25 Georgetown Hoyas. TCU and VCU are ranked ahead of the Aztecs at No. 25 and No. 26, respectively. SDSU played two games this past week, beating UC Riverside 61-33 and San Diego Christian 72-50.

SDSU is ranked 25th in the Coaches Poll.

There is one change, though; the UNLV Rebels (9-3) are now getting votes to be in the top 25 after beating Arizona last week, receiving five votes this week.

Arizona fell to No. 8 after losing 71-67 to UNLV. The Washington Huskies, who handed SDSU its second loss of the season in Seattle, fell to No. 21 after Stony Brook upset them 62-57.
