Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

With the conference tournaments firmly in the rearview mirror and the NCAA Tournament just around the corner, the field of 68 has been leaked released. Although the rankings carry little to no value at this point of the season, the AP and Coaches Poll have weighed in once again.

Scheduled to play in Oklahoma City on Friday in the field of 64, the Oklahoma Sooners defeated a talented and experienced Iowa State team in Kansas City during the Big XII Tournament. However, OU suffered a loss in the semi-final round to the West Virginia Mountaineers. What was the consequence of failing to reach the Big XII Championship Game? A one spot slide down to No. 7 in both polls.

Without any further ado, here are the complete rankings.
