Coogs Drop 2 Spots In AP Poll

Updated: 11:17 a.m.

The Cougars fell two spots to #22 in the AP Poll this week.

Our poll tracking coverage here:

It’s 27 days until Selection Sunday and the 20-6 Coogs are in a great spot for a bid to the tournament. But first: this week’s AP Poll. After the loss to SMU, the Coogs will likely drop a spot (or so) in the AP Poll this week. We predict UH will be #22, maybe at 21, when the rankings come out at 11 a.m.
