The poll was relatively unchanged from the preseason after every team but one went undefeated during the opening weekend.
Louisville and Florida swapped spots — now now No. 7 and No. 8, respectively — in the only change in the top 10. Kansas was fifth, North Carolina sixth, with Virginia and Texas closing out the top 10.
Harvard, tied for No. 25, dropped out after losing to Holy Cross.
