The middle of the bracket was fairly stable this week, but there were some notable changes made at the top and bottom. For the first time in over a month, there is a new face on the 1 line. Villanova dropped down to a 2 seed this week after losing at home to UConn and on the road to Pitt, and were replaced on the 1 line by Purdue. The red-hot Boilermakers extended their winning streak to nine games last week with victories at Ohio State and at home against Illinois and made the move up from the 2 line.
