2011 College Basketball AP Poll – Week 6

We had a big week for upsets this past week in college basketball. #1 Kentucky and #2 Ohio State both lost on the road this past week. Syracuse rose to be the new #1 in the AP poll with Kentucky dropping to third and the Buckeyes to #2. Louisville was ranked to #4 from #5. Dropping out of the top 25 this week were Memphis, Gonzaga, and Harvard. Indiana, Michigan State, and Murray State are all new additions to the poll this week.
