The Top 25 rankings should look considerably different this week.

NCAA Basketball: Texas A&M at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

In what can only be described as a March Madness-style week, the college basketball Top 25 rankings will almost certainly be shaken up this week. Almost half of the current top ranked teams suffered losses this past week.

Included in those twelve are three of the top four, and over half of the top 15, teams took L’s.

Here’s the full break down of the losing teams, including those who lost twice:

Several teams will fall in the polls this week (Texas Tech, Florida State) and some will more than likely fall all the way out of the Top 25 (Oklahoma, Indiana).

The Kentucky Wildcats should benefit from all the turmoil in the top 10. The Wildcats currently sit at No. 12 in the AP Poll and No. 14 in the Coaches’ Poll. After taking care of business against Georgia and winning their first road game against a top-15 team since 2014, the Wildcats should slide into the top 10 in the AP poll and might get that far in the Coaches’ Poll.

This week will certainly shake up the rankings and it makes me excited for March.
