UConn cruised to easy wins over Memphis and Tulane. Next up is a trip to South Carolina on Thursday to face the No. 7 Gamecocks.

The top five remained unchanged this week with Mississippi State, Baylor, Louisville and Notre Dame following UConn.

Texas, UCLA and Florida State round out the first 10 teams.

Stanford moved back into the Top 25 at No. 24 and replaced Arizona State, which fell out of the poll.

Other tidbits from the poll:

FALLING BUCKEYES

Ohio State dropped six spots to No. 18 after getting routed by Maryland and Iowa State this week. The Buckeyes haven't been ranked this low since the final poll of the 2015 season, when they were 23rd.

DUCKS FLY TOGETHER

Oregon's climb up the poll has reached new heights as the Ducks are No. 6. Oregon has never been ranked that high. Before this season, ninth was the best the team had ever achieved. Oregon hosts Stanford and Cal this weekend in games that could put more room between the Ducks and the rest of the Pac-12.

SEC CLASHES

With five teams in the Top 25, it seems that every week there are great games in the Southeastern Conference. No. 14 Texas A&M visits 12th-ranked Tennessee on Thursday. That same night, second-ranked Mississippi State plays at No. 15 Missouri.
