RPI WATCH: 1/12/2011

The outcomes of Tuesday night's Big 12 games will come as a surprise to absolutely nobody.

Texas absolutely creamed Texas Tech by 30 points in Lubbock while Doug Gottlieb pontificated the entire time about what a crappy job the Red Raiders' head coaching position is, while Baylor dispatched Oklahoma handily in Waco.

That leaves K-State needing to win tonight in order to keep pace with the Bears and Longhorns in the race for second place — and to avoid falling into the 0-2 Big 12 basement with the Sooners and Dead Faders, of course.

In other news, Florida blew a late lead in Knoxville, allowing a Bruce Pearl-less Tennessee to tie the score and force overtime.

But the Volunteers ran out of gas in the extra period and the Gators were able to advance to 2-0, cementing them as the chief challenger to Kentucky and surprising Georgia for not just the division crown, but the entire SEC.
