The USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll for the week of Monday, Feb. 6 is out, and there's a change or two up top. While Kentucky is holding its spot at the top with all 31 of the first-place votes and Syracuse sits at No. 2 with Missouri and North Carolina at No. 4 and No. 5, there's some changes just outside the top five. Baylor remains No. 6, though they were in a tie last week for the position, as Duke drops several places down to No. 9. Florida and Murray State move up to a tie at No. 7, where they were No. 11 and No. 9 last week, respectively.

Murray State remains the only unbeaten team at 23-0 on the season. Kansas rounds out the top ten, down two spots from last week.

This means that the Ohio State Buckeyes are, once again, at No. 3 on the poll. They're riding a five-game winning streak, including wins over the then-No. 8 Indiana, then-No. 22 Michigan and then-No. 20 Wisconsin. The latter two were in their last two outings, and they haven't lost since Jan. 10 when they were upset by un-ranked Illinois.

OSU does have some tough games ahead, with the under-rated Purdue in their next outing, and four more games against ranked opponents, which include the aforementioned Michigan and Wisconsin, with two games against Michigan State.
