College basketball rankings: Michigan jumps up to No. 5, Louisville No. 1 in latest Coaches Poll

As expected, the Michigan Wolverines are the biggest winner's in this week's USA Today Coaches Poll. After winning the Battle 4 Atlantis by defeating Iowa State, North Carolina and Gonzaga, Juwan Howard's team vaults into the rankings and lands at No. 5. 

On Tuesday night, UM will face top-ranked Louisville, which is No. 1 in both major polls this week. Other big jumps include Dayton going from unranked up to No. 17 and Florida State going from unranked up to No. 19. 

Given all the early season tournament action in the previous seven days, changeover in the coaches poll was inevitable: Texas Tech, Utah State, VCU, Xavier and Florida all dropped out.
