A new college basketball Coaches' Poll is out. We have a new No. 1 team for the new year.

Duke has overtaken fellow ACC program Virginia for the top spot. Neither the Blue Devils or Cavaliers played this week, but the voters still made the change.

Nevada and Kansas also switched places in the top 10. Wisconsin experienced the biggest drop in the poll, with NC State making the biggest rise.

Oklahoma is the only new team in the mix this week.

Here’s the full Coaches’ Poll top 25:
