The 4-0 Virginia Cavaliers move up a couple spots in the rankings this week.

Amber Searls-USA TODAY Sports

Week Three AP and Coaches Polls are already out for men's college basketball, and America's team, Virginia, has moved up to No. 8 in the AP and No. 7 in the Coaches Poll thanks to a pretty incredible 72-40 meltdown by Kansas to the top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats.

On the ACC front, Virginia continues to be behind Duke, North Carolina and Louisville. Syracuse fell out of the Top 25 after losing 73-59 to Cal, while the Miami Hurricanes jump from unranked to No. 17/20. The Canes had toppled No. 8 Florida, 69-67, and kept focus as they won the Charleston Classic, the preseason tournament that the Hoos will be playing in next year.

The full AP Poll is below, followed by the full Coaches Poll.
