Just four weeks after reappearing in the coaches' poll, the Vols (18-3) made their Top 10 debut. Currently riding a seven-game winning streak, Tennessee got wins at both Kentucky and Georgia last week to jump four spots to No. 10.
One of three unbeatens, Pittsburgh (14-0) rose two spots to No. 9 in the ESPN/USA Today coaches' poll following wins last week over DePaul and then-No. 10 Louisville, which fell five spots to No. 15 after the loss.
