College Basketball Power Rankings: Michigan and Auburn Big Risers

Just several weeks into the season we have already seen three #1 ranked teams fall. No team has separated from the rest of the pack, which should make for a fun season with a ton of parody. The big surprise so far this season is Juwan Howard's Michigan Wolverines. Howard has led the Wolverines to upset wins over Gonzaga and North Carolina, and the Wolverines have gone from unranked to the top-5.
