In other recent games, Texas Tech knocked off Baylor to drop them a few spots on the selection ladder, and UConn beat #17 Memphis on the road to significantly boost their resume.
There are several huge matchups this weekend to keep an eye on. I predict that at least FIVE of these eight games will result in an upset.
-#22 Pitt heads to the Carrier Dome to try and hand #2 'Cuse their first loss of the season.
-#4 Michigan State plays a tough road game against a now unranked Illinois team coming off back-to-back dissapointing losses.
-#8 Iowa State will try to stop their bleeding against an underrated Texas team in Austin.
-#9 Oklahoma State travels to Lawrence to face the #15 Jayhawks in the game of the weekend. Look for Kansas to dominate this one!
-The #25 Sooners play at #12 Baylor - both teams looking to rebound after disappointing losses.
-Tennessee will try to work their way onto the bubble on the road against an overrated #13 Kentucky squad that just lost to another bubble team in Arkansas.
-#18 Louisville goes on the road to face UConn (hardly an upset call here...the Cards' RPI is #43, Huskies are #16).
-And finally, the Gophers will try to launch themselves into the top-25 with a big win at #14 Iowa.
Alright, without further ado, here are the updated standings. Stay tuned for the next update as I'm sure there will be some major shake-ups!
