Most Recent College Basketball Polls Released: Duke Up To No. 2

While the college football season is officially winding down, the college basketball campaign is doing just the opposite. This past week, we got to see a number of early season marquee matchups. Kentucky was able to handle Texas. Duke went on the road and took down Wisconsin. And Arizona was able to outlast Gonzaga in overtime. We're starting to get a better picture of which teams are among the elite this year.

In both polls, Kentucky, Duke, Arizona and Louisville make up the 1-4 slots. Wisconsin, despite losing at home to the Blue Devils, is ranked at No. 5 in the AP Poll and No. 6 in the Coaches' Poll. That should tell you what voters think about Duke this year.

Michigan, after losing to NJIT, is not part of either poll.

Here are both polls. You can check out the official rankings from the Associated Press here and USA Today here.
