There were no upsets in college basketball as all the ranked teams in action won their games. However, No. 6 Nevada faced a stern road test against conference rivals Colorado State, but Nevada managed to pull away at the end. No. 19 Wisconsin also faced a difficult road game against upset-minded Minnesota who have already defeated some of the best teams in college basketball this year.
