The new USA Today Coaches Poll is out and, in the least surprising decision ever, Michigan State remains at No. 1.

It’s not a consensus yet -- Oklahoma still landed a pair of first-place votes -- but the Spartans are clearly the best team in the country, assuming Denzel Valentine returns from his knee injury healthy.

The big movers this week: Iowa State, Duke and Kentucky dropping to 9, 10 and 11 after losses over the weekend.

Here’s the full poll:

No. 1 Michigan State (12-0, 29 first-place votes)
No. 2 Oklahoma (8-0, 2)
No. 3 Kansas (9-1)
No. 4 Maryland (10-1)
No. 5 Virginia (9-1)
No. 6 Xavier (11-0)
No. 7 North Carolina (9-2)
No. 8 Arizona (11-1)
No. 9 Iowa State (9-1)
No. 10 Duke (9-2)
No. 11 Kentucky (9-2)
No. 12 Butler (9-1)
No. 13 Purdue (11-1)
No. 14 Providence (11-1)
No. 15 Louisville (9-1)
No. 16 Miami (9-1)
No. 17 Villanova (8-2)
No. 18 West Virginia (9-1)
No. 19 Texas A&M (9-2)
