ESPN's Basketball Power Index top 25 poll has updated after one of the craziest Saturdays of the year in the college basketball world.

With just a couple of weeks remaining in the regular season, we had one of our wildest days of the 2019-20 season on Saturday. Several of the country's highest-ranked teams went down, opening the door for a major NCAA Tournament seeding shakeup.

Three of the nation's top four teams lost on Saturday, as No. 1 Baylor lost to No. 3 Kansas, No. 2 Gonzaga fell to No. 23 BYU and No. 4 San Diego State fell to unranked UNLV. This all comes a couple of days after No. 6 Duke was blown out by N.C. State.

ESPN's Basketball Power Index has updated following Saturday's crazy slate of games. Coach K's team remains the No. 1 team in the country, according to the computer model.

Here's the full top 25:

  1. Duke
  2. Kansas
  3. Gonzaga
  4. Michigan State
  5. Baylor
  6. San Diego State
  7. Louisville
  8. Arizona
  9. Dayton
  10. Maryland
  11. West Virginia
  12. Ohio State
  13. Texas Tech
  14. Michigan
  15. Florida State
  16. Houston
  17. Villanova
  18. Penn State
  19. BYU
  20. Oregon
  21. Purdue
  22. Seton Hall
  23. Kentucky
  24. Iowa
  25. Wisconsin

We're now less than a month away from Selection Sunday. There could be some turnover on the No. 1 seed line thanks to Saturday's upsets.

Maryland, the No. 7 team in the country, could move up to the top line. The Terrapins need to win at Ohio State today in order to make that happen, though.
