No. 4 team in the country.

San Diego State keeps on winning and they are shooting up the rankings and are one step closer to finishing with an undefeated regular season. The Aztecs are No. 4 in both coaches and Associated Press top 25 polls, plus KenPom gives them a 20.9 percent chance of going undefeated.

The Aztecs are standing as the last undefeated team in college basketball after Auburn’s loss last week. In the coaches poll, San Diego State is just three points behind Kansas for third. It also should be noted that the Jayhawks were seventh last week and moved up four spots after toppling Texas and Oklahoma. So, there is still some big conference bias compared to what the Aztecs accomplish.

This No. 4 ranking is the highest in either poll since the 2010-11 year which saw San Diego State also peak with a No. 4 ranking. The swing of votes is No. 2 through No. 9 for the Aztecs in the AP poll with the majority slotting thema at No. 4.

The only way it seems for San Diego State to climb higher in the polls is by other teams above them losing and the Aztecs keep on winning.
