The top of the ESPN/USA Today women's basketball poll looks familiar, minus Texas A&M and Xavier, with the top four remaining the same from last week.

UConn (8-0, with all 31 first-place votes), Stanford (7-0), Tennessee (8-0) and Notre Dame (9-0) hold their top four spots from last week, but Texas A&M fell from fifth to 11th after their first loss of the year.

Xavier (7-2) dropped from 8th to 14th after losing to unranked Michigan on Monday.

Baylor (8-1) is the new No. 5 team, with Florida State (8-0), Ohio State (10-1), Duke (7-1), LSU (7-0) and North Carolina (8-1) rounding out the top 10.

Nebraska (10-0) made the biggest climb this week, using its perfect record to move from 23rd to 18th. West Virginia (9-1), Wisconsin-Green Bay (9-0) and James Madison (7-0) entered the rankings this week.

Falling out were Maryland (8-2), Dayton (9-2) and California (4-4).
