Winners & Losers from the AP College Basketball Top 25 Rankings in Week 5
Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sport

The AP votes are in, and Michigan State is the No. 1 college basketball team in the country for a third week in a row.

It's one of the few things that didn't change.

Preseason tournaments meant losses for Kansas, Oklahoma State, Duke and Gonzaga while catapulting Villanova, San Diego State and Dayton into the national spotlight.

Villanova had one of the biggest jumps in recent memory, debuting in the AP Top 25 at No. 14 after coming in at No. 37 just a week ago.

North Carolina experienced the biggest drop after losing to UAB on Sunday, slipping from No. 16 to No. 29. Gonzaga's fall from grace wasn't quite as steep, but America's favorite Cinderella dropped from No. 11 to No. 19 after its loss to Dayton in Maui.

After sifting through all the shakeups, here are this week's biggest winners and losers in the new AP rankings.
