The Aztecs, at 17-0, saw the nation’s only other undefeated team, Auburn, rise a spot in both polls, to No. 4.
Gonzaga, Baylor and Duke took the top three spots in the polls. Kansas fell from No. 3, and all the way out of the Top 5, making room for Baylor.
In addition, Yanni Wetzell has been named the Mountain West Men’s Basketball “Peak Player of the Week.”
