(WXYZ/AP) — The Michigan State Spartans have cracked the top 10 while the Michigan Wolverines have fallen in this week's AP Top 25 poll.

MSU rose to No. 8 after their win over Michigan on Sunday, while the Wolverines fell to No. 19.

Gonzaga, Duke and Kansas remain atop The Associated Press men's college basketball poll.

The rest of the top 10 is a big jumble.

The Bulldogs received 54 first-place votes from a 65-member media panel in the poll released Monday. The Blue Devils had nine first-place votes and the Jayhawks two.

No. 4 Baylor moved into the top five for the first time in three years and undefeated Auburn was up to No. 5.

Butler climbed five spots to No. 6 for the program's highest ranking ever and was followed by San Diego State, Michigan State, Oregon and No. 10 Florida State.

Gonzaga is No. 1 for the third straight week, a first in a season of parity at the top of the AP poll.
