The Huskies are now 100-0 against AAC opponents since the formation of the conference, 86-0 in regular-season games and 14-0 in the conference tournaments.

Baylor moved up to second and Louisville third after then-No. 2 Mississippi State lost to South Carolina in the SEC title game. The Bulldogs slipped to fourth. Notre Dame was fifth.

Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, UCLA and Ohio State rounded out the top 10.
