UNDATED (AP) - Oklahoma didn't just move to the top of The Associated Press Top 25, the Sooners are a unanimous No. 1.

 
Coming off a week with two 2-point wins, the Sooners (15-1) received all 65 first-place votes from the national media panel on Monday. It is Oklahoma's first time at No. 1 since the final two weeks of 1989-90. Kentucky was a unanimous No. 1 for 12 weeks last season.
 
Oklahoma becomes the fifth school to be No. 1 this season, joining North Carolina, Kentucky, Michigan State and Kansas.
 
North Carolina jumps three spots to No. 2 while Kansas, which lost to West Virginia last week, dropped two places to No. 3.
 
Villanova is fourth followed by Xavier, West Virginia, Maryland, SMU, Iowa and Texas A&M.
 
No. 21 Southern California, ranked for the first time since 2008-09, and No. 25 Indiana, which returns after being out the last seven weeks, are this week's newcomers, replacing Pittsburgh and Gonzaga.
