KANSAS STATE RPI WATCH: 12/22/14

In which Tennessee loses at North Carolina State and pretty much everyone else that's supposed to win does so.

N.C. State didn't help out with the quality of one of K-State's losses when it beat Tennessee, almost nullifying the Volunteers' upset win over Butler.

Note: This entry recaps games played through Thursday night. Friday and weekend action will be reported in Friday's installment of RPI WATCH.

The first four days of the week were basically neutral for K-State, with the Big 12 going 5-0 against massively inferior competition and Arizona, Bradley, Nebraska-Omaha, and Pittsburgh winning home games they're supposed to win.

If anything significant could be said to have happened, it was Tennessee's loss at N.C. State that basically wiped out any good the Vols accomplished by beating Butler (in addition to Butler's second consecutive loss, to Indiana).
