This past weekend saw some big wins and significant losses impacting the Top 25 rankings in both the AP Top 25 and the Amway Coaches Poll. First and foremost, Ohio State dropped from No. 2 down to No. 8 in both polls following their loss to Michigan State. Oklahoma State also dropped to No. 9 in the AP Poll and No. 10 in Coaches Poll. Clemson, Alabama, Iowa, Notre Dame and Oklahoma instead makeup the Top 5 in both polls.

As for the AAC, Houston is the biggest storyline. The Cougars fell to UConn on the road Saturday, dropping them from No. 13 in the AP Poll and No 14 in the Coaches Poll to No. 21 in both. Temple, fresh off their win over Memphis, is back in the backend of both polls, ranked No. 25 in the AP Top 25 and No. 24 in the Coaches Poll. The only other team of note from Cincinnati's schedule is BYU, receiving three votes in the AP Top 25 and five votes in the Coaches Poll.
