Who Will Be the Last Undefeated Team in College Basketball?
Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

This time last year, four college basketball teams were undefeated. A week later, that number was zero.

Why is it so hard to stay perfect past the first few weeks in January?

Conference play does this cruel thing to the undefeated teams: It makes them go on the road.

If you take away Wichita State from the group of six remaining undefeated teams, the other fiveArizona, Wisconsin, Ohio State, Syracuse and Iowa Statehave combined to play 10 road games. The Shockers have already played four games on the road.

Over the next four weeks, those five teams play 18 road games. And they'll start dropping like flies.

No one has been perfect since Indiana in 1976, and it has now been 23 years since a team entered the tournament with a perfect record—UNLV did so in 1991.

Can any of the six stay perfect this year? Let's rank their chances.
