Michigan State Remains On Top In Week 6 College Basketball Polls

Week 6 of the College basketball season's basketball polls.

The voters in the AP and Coaches Poll agree on one thing: as of now, Michigan State is king. Tom Izzo's Spartans are on top of both polls, but after that, they look quite different. Specifically, the AP voters and coaches can't come to an agreement about the Big 12's top two teams. The AP has the Kansas Jayhawks second and Iowa State Cyclones fifth, while the two are flipped in the coaches poll. There are plenty of other differences across the two polls, which are included below.
