In which Long Beach State narrowly misses a chance to beat a Top 25 team, while Iowa State and Kansas collect nice road wins against the Big Ten and Big East, respectively.

Dammit, Long Beach. We really needed you to get that win.

Note: This entry recaps games played through Friday night. Weekend action will be recounted in Wednesday's installment of RPI WATCH. This entry probably should have been published during the weekend, but was not due to author oversight and laziness.

We narrowly missed an RPI/SOS-boosting result when Long Beach State blew a nine-point lead a San Diego State. If the 49ers just could have held on against the Aztecs, it would've gone long way toward erasing the stink of that loss.

Elsewise, Texas Tech collected a nice home win over Fresno State, but the real late-week push came from the conference's quality road wins over Georgetown (Kansas) and Iowa (Iowa State). Those will go a long way in RPI.
