The fourth editions of the regular season USA Today/ESPN and Associated Press Top 25 Polls were released on Monday, and the Kentucky Wildcats remained the No. 1 team in the country after defeating North Carolina in dramatic fashion over the weekend. The Florida Gators dropped a few spots after falling to the then-No. 3/4 Syracuse Orange on the road 72-68 despite three consecutive blowout wins. Florida is one of four Southeastern Conference teams listed in the respective rankings.
