#2 UCLA Bruins, 12-0: UCLA is climbing up on the edge of number one with big wins over Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio State and Texas A&M to give them perhaps the best resume in the nation. Can they surpass the defending national champs though?
#18 Arizona Wildcats, 10-2: Arizona’s two losses are to the ranked, so they’re in decent enough shape. They can pick up big wins in Pac-12 play and still have a lot of potential if they can get their full roster on the floor.
#20 Oregon Ducks, 10-2: Oregon lost to an undefeated team but they have a host of solid wins against UNLV, UConn, and Tennessee. They’re still very much in the Pac-12 title hunt.
#23 USC Trojans, 10-0: USC has had a fairly nice schedule relative to most, but the Trojans have some good wins against schools like Texas A&M and BYU.
Below are the full top 25 rankings.
