They may not be playing in the Final Four this weekend, but for the third year in a row, the Duke Blue Devils are America's Favorite College Basketball team. The overall number one seed for this year's NCAA Men's College Basketball tournament, Kentucky, is number two on the list up from number 4 last year. This is the highest Kentucky has been since 2004 when they were tied for second place. And, last year's number two, North Carolina dropped one spot to number three this year
While Connecticut remains America's Favorite Women's College Basketball team again this year, there is a new number two as Baylor jumps up from number four last year. Dropping down one spot to number three is Tennessee and returning to the list at number 4 after a six year absence is Notre Dame. Also returning to the list, but after a 2 year absence is Maryland who is back in at number 5.
