After winning their eighth straight game Chris Mack and the Louisville Cardinals have climbed back into the top five of the updated AP Poll.

With road wins at Boston College and at North Carolina State, Louisville has jumped one spot from No. 6 to No. 5.

The rest of the top five remains the same as last week. Louisville took Florida State’s spot at No. 5 after the Seminoles lost to Virginia.

Updated AP Poll – 2/3

1. Baylor
2. Gonzaga
3. Kansas
4. San Diego State
5. Louisville
6. Dayton
7. Duke
8. Florida State
9. Maryland
10. Villanova
11. Auburn
12. Seton Hall
13. West Virginia
14. Oregon
15. Kentucky
16. Michigan State
17. Iowa
18. LSU
19. Butler
20. Illinois
21. Creighton
22. Penn State
23. Arizona
24. Colorado
25. Houston

A win on Wednesday night against Wake Forest would give the Cards a 20-3 record. This would be the shortest amount of time it’s taken to get to 20 wins since the Feb. of 2005.
