North Carolina, Connecticut and Pittsburgh held on to the top three spots in The Associated Press' college basketball poll on Monday.
The first change came at No. 4 as Oklahoma moved up one position to replace Gonzaga, which lost to Arizona on Sunday and dropped to eighth.
Texas, Duke, Xavier, Louisville and Wake Forest rounded out the top 10.
Clemson, which is off to a 10-0 start for the fourth straight season, was the week's lone newcomer, moving in at No. 25. The Tigers replaced defending national champion Kansas (7-2), which lost to Massachusetts on Saturday and fell out of the rankings for the second time this season.
The Big East had a record eight teams in the Top 25 for the third straight week.
