The 2022 portion of the men’s college basketball season has already experienced plenty of fits and starts, resulting in a crazy week of upsets that produced considerable shuffling in the Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll.

Baylor, however, managed to stay above the fray and remains the unanimous No. 1 choice for another week. The Bears are off to a 3-0 start in the rugged Big 12 and is 15-0 overall as they look to defend last year’s national championship.
