Following the opening week of the 2014 Big East schedule that saw Villanova (13-1, 2-0) claim victories on the road at Butler and a 30-point win at home over Providence, Jay Wright's Wildcats have been tabbed with the #8 ranking in the newest poll released by the AP writers on Monday.

Arizona (15-0) and Syracuse (14-0) remain the top two teams in the country.

No other Big East team is ranked, although Creighton and Xavier are receiving votes.
