Some shuffling of the deck chairs up at the top of the rankings, but thanks to the #1 teams swapping losses every week no one has really plummeted. But absolute strength scores took a hit -- from 144 at the top last week to only 131 this week. Duke (averaging +14 points over the last four games) and Oklahoma State (thanks to the win over #5 Kansas) both surge upwards, while Creighton plunges thanks to three losses in the last six games.
Predictions for Saturday's Top Ten games:
#2 Florida by 25 over Mississippi State
Wisconsin by 1.5 over #3 Michigan
Wisconsin isn't ranked but should be. This game is at Wisconsin.#5 Kansas by 6 over Oklahoma.
#6 Gonzaga by 23 over Loyola-Marymount
Gonzaga is over-ranked at #6, but LMU is not good.#8 Miami (FL) by 3 over UNC
This is basically a coin-flip game. The polls will be expecting Miami to win and will punish them if they lose, but this would actually be a very solid win for them.#11 Louisville by 5 over #25 Notre Dame
