RPI WATCH: 11/22/2010

Virginia Tech joined James Madison and Presbyterian in dispatching a moderate opponent on the road, while Texas Southern notched a huge (relatively speaking) win over an Oregon State program that is sinking faster than its the presidential poll ratings of its coach's brother-in-law.

Florida struggled once more, this time gritting out a tougher-than-expected win against rebounding king Kenneth Faried and his Morehead State Eagles.

In conference action, Oklahoma State won comfortably over Nicholls State, while Texas Tech won not-so-comfortably against Liberty. Iowa State squeaked out a win over its former coach and his new team, Creighton, and Nebraska ensured it would not leave Puerto Rico winless by toppling even-more-hapless Hofstra.
