Since last week:
The top eight remained basically the same, except for Villanova jumping over Wisconsin due to two impressive Big East road wins.
Utah re-entered the top 10 after continuing to roll through everything in the Pac 12 not named Arizona. The Utes also received help from Louisville, North Carolina and Iowa State, who all stubbed their toes last week.
Arkansas stormed into the rankings with a blowout win over Auburn and a road win at Ole Miss.
West Virginia and Cincinnati exited the rankings after tough weeks, particularly for the Bearcats who were blown out at Temple before suffering a terrible home loss to Tulane.
