The Michigan State Spartans are still the No. 1 team in the country, according to 64 of the 65 AP voters. The only other team to get an AP vote? The Kansas Jayhawks, who lost to Michigan State on the fifth day of the season.

What’s more interesting, however, is to see just how far some of the teams that lost fell. Iowa State, Kentucky, Duke and Purdue all dropped out of the top ten.
