Feast Week is in the books and it led to a significant shakeup in the AP Top 25 poll. Kansas, which had been No. 1, fell four spots after losing to Marquette in the Maui Invitational while Purdue surged to the top spot by claiming victory over the Golden Eagles in the final.

We also saw two new teams enter the poll for the first time as Colorado State and Oklahoma got ranked as a result of 6-0 starts. Let's take a look at how they and the rest of the Top 25 will do with predictions for each matchup involving a Top 25 team on the schedule.

Editor's Note: Projected winners will be listed in bold.
