College Hoops Power Rankings: Only Three Unbeaten Teams Remain After Another Upset-Filled Week

It's Christmas, but the college basketball season is churning right along as we approach the start of conference play at the end of the month. 

While there weren't many high-profile games over the last week, there were many more stunning upsets that shook up the national landscape. Wofford went into Chapel Hill and knocked off North Carolina, marking the fourth straight week in which a top-five team lost at home - and the Terriers' first-ever win over a ranked team. UNC bounced back with a win over Ohio State in the CBS Sports Classic, but Kentucky suffered a demoralizing 83-75 loss to UCLA.

It was also a big week for mid-majors on the West Coast. Gonzaga hit the road and fell to San Diego State, while New Mexico State handed Miami their first loss late Saturday night at the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic. With that loss by the Hurricanes, only three undefeated teams (Villanova, Arizona State, TCU) are left.

Oklahoma's Trae Young continued his dominance with two insane performances this week - 26 points, 22 assists vs. Northwestern State and 31 points, 12 assists vs. Northwestern - in huge wins for the Sooners, solidifying them as a top-five team in these rankings. Elsewhere in the Big 12, reinforcements could be coming for Kansas as they will get four-star forward Silvio De Sousa for conference play - and expect five-star forward Billy Preston to join him.

How will all of that craziness shake up the rankings this week? With it being Christmas, there are no team-by-team breakdowns (we're all busy, right?), but you can hit me up on Twitter if you want to ask me anything. Here are my latest Top 25 Power Rankings:
