College Basketball Rankings: Nevada Drops To Lowest; Utah State Earning Votes
The Aggies win over the Wolf Pack led to a drastic change in the rankings.
Mountain West nearly has two teams ranked
The result of that game caused the Wolf Pack to drop to its lowest ranking all year by dropping five spots to 17th in the latest Associated Press top 25 poll. In the same poll, Utah State received votes for the first time all year with the fourth-most from the other receiving votes category.
In the coaches poll, the Wolf Pack fell to 18th and the Aggies are receiving votes as the seventh team on the outside looking in.
The loss for Nevada was only its third of the year — all of which came on the road — and the second within a four-game stretch.
The Aggies have been the hottest team in the league by winning six in a row and 13 of its past 14 games.
Now, the two teams are tied for first place in the Mountain West and the Aggies have a chance to share and even possibly winning the conference outright with one more week left in the season.
