The college basketball world featured some big results this weekend. Most notably, Kentucky, the No. 5 team in the country, blew out No. 1 Tennessee, 86-69.
The Wildcats are now looking like a legitimate national title favorite, while the top of the polls will likely change heading into the upcoming week.
ESPN has updated its college basketball rankings following everything that went down on Saturday.
The Basketball Power Index has a new top 10.
Here are the rankings:

The official new top 25 polls will be released on Monday. Both the Associated Press and Coaches’ Poll will come out at roughly noon E.T. on Monday.
The NCAA Tournament, meanwhile, is almost a month away. Selection Sunday is set for Sunday, March 17. The games will begin shortly after that.
We can’t wait.
