Undefeated DI men's college basketball teams in 2019-20

Here's why Baylor is ranked ahead of Gonzaga in Andy Katz's latest Power 36 rankings

Each college basketball season begins with a clean slate for all 353 teams. As of now, there's just one¬†undefeated DI men's college basketball team left ‚ÄĒ No. 4¬†San Diego State (20-0). We'll continue to track the Aztecs¬†all season to see if they can achieve an undefeated regular season.

No team has had a perfect season since Indiana went 32-0 in 1976. Including that year, there have only been seven undefeated seasons in Division I basketball since the start of the NCAA tournament in 1939. Only Wichita State and Kentucky have taken perfect records into the NCAA tournament since 2014. That year, the Shockers reached the Round of 32 at 35-0 before their only loss of the season. The following year, the Wildcats finished 38-1, carrying a perfect record into the Final Four.
