Last year, the Syracuse Orange spent a sizable amount of time at the No.1 spot in all the land. This weekend, they'll attempt to make the Louisville Cardinals' stint there as brief as possible.
In the AP Poll, the Orange are up one spot to No. 6. Louisville jumps up to No. 1 followed by Indiana, former No. 1 Duke, Kansas and Michigan. Other notables include the No. 15 San Diego St. Aztecs, No. 20 Notre Dame Fighting Irish and No. 25 Marquette Golden Eagles. Georgetown and Cincy both dropped out of the rankings.
In the Coaches Poll, it's the same Top 6 with SU up one spot again. San Diego St. (14th), ND (20th) and Cincy (24th) are other notables while Georgetown dropped out of the rankings.
In the ESPN Power Rankings, SU is sixth as well. Fran Frischilla is true believer (No. 3) but Andy Katz (No. 11) and Jason King (No. 12) are unimpressed.
In the SB Nation Power Rankings, the Orange come in seventh and Minnesota sneaks past them.
Sagarin Ratings: 8th
Colley Matrix: 9th
Massey Ratings: 10th
The AP Voter You Arbitrarily Hate This Week continues to be Jon Wilner. Wilner did move the Orange up to No. 18 overall (21 last week). He also still has Duke No. 1 and San Diego State ninth, which would be infuriating if it wasn't so hilarious.
The AP Voter You Arbitrarily Love This Week is a seven-way tie for the writers who put Syracuse all the way up at No. 4. God bless (full AP votes).
