"I can't believe they did it." - little girl in the background - USA TODAY Sports

Massachusetts is starting to gain the national attention that the Minutemen deserve, moving into this week's AP Top 25 Poll. But it cost another mid-major its spot in the rankings after a two-loss week.

Michigan State remains atop the AP Top 25 Poll this week, further cementing its place at number one by increasing its first place vote total by five.

The mid-major ranks continue to hold steady at three, but it isn't the same three as just a week ago.

VCU fell out of the rankings after losing twice in Puerto Rico.

But Gonzaga and Wichita State each gained two spots in the poll, up to 11 and 12. Massachusetts joins the rankings this week at No. 24 after winning the Charleston Classic. The Minutemen are 6-0 with wins over four major conference opponents.

Also receiving votes this week are VCU, Charlotte, Belmont, Harvard and George Washington.

Here is the complete AP Top 25 poll for Week 4.
