KANSAS STATE RPI WATCH: 01/11/15

New, 7 comments

In which ranked teams carry the day in the Big 12 and elsewhere (unless they played other ranked teams) and K-State's SEC opponents each rise/fall to 9-4.

Despite Purdue's loss earlier this week to ranked Wisconsin, the Boilermakers moved back into the RPI Top 100 and became a quality win for K-State.

Ranked teams carried the day this week in the Big 12 Conference, although it was a narrow thing in the case of Iowa State, which survived Oklahoma State by two points. Baylor and Texas lost to other ranked teams, of course.

TCU suffered its second loss of the season to our own Wildcats, who hopefully are beginning to climb out of the hole they created when they impacted and hit rock bottom.

Our three SEC opponents all moved to 9-4 overall, with Georgia losing to Arkansas and Texas A&M being clowned by Alabama, but Tennessee redeemed them by winning at Mississippi State.

In other non-conference action, Arizona, Long Beach State and Pittsburgh all collected conference wins, while Savannah State won just its fourth game, period.

But Bradley and Purdue both lost to top-15 conference opposition, Nebraska-Omaha also lost a tough one in conference play, and UMKC just keeps losing to increasingly putrid opponents.
