NCAA Basketball: Indiana State at Purdue Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports

It is still very early and Purdue has not played a likely NCAA Tournament team yet, but rankings are fun. Beginning the season in the top 10 paves the way for a potential 1 seed, and so far Purdue is there. Villanova and Texas lost this past week (albeit it to #2 UCLA and #1 Gonzaga, respectively), so Purdue is up one spot this week to No. 6.

  1. Gonzaga (55) 1,517
  2. UCLA (6) 1,450
  3. Kansas 1,400
  4. Michigan 1,252
