Winners and Losers from the AP College Basketball Top 25 Rankings in Week 12
John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

To nobody's surprise, Arizona and Syracuse are No. 1 and No. 2 in the AP college basketball Top 25 rankings for a seventh consecutive week.

More intriguing, however, are the biggest winners and losers.

We have a new Big Ten team ranked No. 3 for the second straight week. Following in Ohio State's footsteps, Wisconsin went from undefeated to two losses in less than a week, becoming one of this week's biggest losers and vacating the No. 3 spot for Michigan State to claim.

On the winning side of the fence, Kansas picked up a pair of wins over Top 10 teams, causing the Jayhawks' vote total to nearly double as they made the leap from No. 15 to No. 8.

And don't look now, but the A-10 is on the prowl. Massachusetts and Saint Louis jumped to No. 13 and No. 19, respectively, giving the A-10 as many teams in the Top 19 as the SEC, the AAC or the ACC. Meanwhile, the Big East and Pac-12 are each represented by just one team in the Top 25.

Here are the rest of this week's biggest winners and losers from the AP Top 25.
