New, 34 comments

A loss to Illinois on the road drops Purdue in the polls for the second straight week.

Mike Granse-USA TODAY Sports

Purdue was able to notch a top 50 RPI win when it beat Michigan on Thursday, but a loss last night at Illinois not only offset that, but caused Purdue to drop yet again in both polls. First, here is the coaches poll:

*Hi/Low Rankings

Hi/Low = The highest and lowest ranking each team has held during the designated season. Any team that starts the season unranked and/or falls out of the top 25 during the season will reflect a "NR" (not ranked) designation as its lowest rank.

Connecticut 34; Oregon 18; Southern California 16; UCLA 12; George Washington 11; California 9; Dayton 5; Houston 5; Valparaiso 5; Washington 3; Texas Tech 3; Cincinnati 2; Arkansas-Little Rock 2; Boise State 1; Hawaii 1; Utah 1; Saint Mary?s 1.

As you can see, Purdue barely hung on at No. 24 and is just ahead of Indiana. Pittsburgh, whose lone defeat was at the hands of Purdue, is 17th.

In the AP Poll Purdue also barely hangs on at No. 25.
