Gonzaga, the last unbeaten team in Division I, moved to No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll for the second time in school history.

The Zags (22-0) jumped up from third when Villanova and Kansas both were beaten in a week when seven of the top 10 lost.

Gonzaga received 46 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel Monday. The Zags were No. 1 for the last three weeks of the 2012-13 season.

Gonzaga is also ranked No. 1 in the latest USA Today coaches poll.

Up next for the Zags is a game at BYU on Thursday at 9 p.m. MST. It's the first time the Cougars will host the No. 1 team in the Marriott Center.

BYU last played the No. 1 in the country on Nov. 24, 2007, when the Cougars lost to North Carolina 73-63 in the Las Vegas Invitational Championship. BYU is 0-4 all-time against No. 1-ranked teams.

Gonzaga is the fifth team to reach No. 1 this season joining Duke, Kentucky, Villanova and Baylor.

Baylor (20-1), one of the three top 10 teams to not lose, jumped from fifth to second. The Bears had six first-place votes and were one point ahead of Kansas (19-2), which dropped one place after losing at West Virginia before winning at Kentucky. The Jayhawks had nine first-place votes.
