Four BIG EAST teams remain as fixtures in this week's USA TODAY Coaches Poll.

The Xavier Musketeers hold the top spot amongst BIG EAST teams this week as they check in at No. 6, up from No. 10 a week ago. The Musketeers played one game this past week, defeating Auburn to move to 11-0 to net their best start in program history.

The biggest mover of the bunch was the Butler Bulldogs. The 'Dawgs climbed up six spots to No. 12 after defeating the Purdue Boilermakers in the 2015 Crossroads Classic. Not only did thy move up the most amongst BIG EAST teams, they also trended up the most amongst all teams in the poll.

The Providence Friars stayed stagnant this past week after a victory against the Rider Broncs.

Finally, the Villanova Wildcats tumbled down four spots to No. 17. The 'Cats took a loss to the Virginia Cavaliers, who bumped up four spots to No. 5 after the victory.

Full poll coming soon.
