The UCLA Bruins remain at No. 2 behind the Villanova Wildcats. Arizona jumped over the Saint Mary’s Gaels after SMC dropped a home game to UT-Arlington on Thursday.

For the rest of the Pac-12, the Oregon Ducks remain ranked, and now the USC Trojans are up there at No. 24 after staying undefeated on the season. Colorado, Utah, and Cal all lost this past week, and none of them are receiving votes in the AP Poll anymore. Cal and Colorado are receiving votes in the Coaches’ poll though.

This week, Arizona hosts the Grand Canyon Antelopes before playing Texas A&M in Houston. The Aggies are essentially T-40th in the Coaches poll after receiving two votes. A&M is not receiving votes in the AP Poll.
