Updated RPI

I realize that its still early in the season, and that RPI doesn't necessarily mean too much at this point. But, we're quickly approaching the new year, and the midway point of the season. A team's RPI is going to start being a little more meaningful real soon here. Because of that, from here on out I'm going to go ahead and give an update on Conference-USA's RPI ratings every week. We saw that some teams still had very high RPI's a week or two ago, so let's see where they stand now. 

  1. Southern Mississippi - RPI    22
  2. Memphis                             44
  3. Central Florida                     45
  4. Alabama-Birmingham           76
  5. Marshall                             115
  6. UTEP                                 126
  7. Tulsa                                  142
  8. Rice                                   160
  9. Houston                              210
  10. East Carolina                      219
  11. Tulane                                247
  12. Southern Methodist             298

As you can see we've definitely made some moves as a conference. Conference-USA still ranks tenth in the nation in overall conference RPI, behind the power 6, the MWC, A-10, and the Colonial. Obviously, strength of schedule (SOS) means a lot too, but I felt I'd let the rest of the non-conference schedules play out so we can get a true feel of C-USA teams SOS.

There are some huge games coming up that will have a profound impact on individual teams' RPI and SOS, and the conference's as well. Among them are Thursday's matchups between UTEP and BYU, and Memphis and Georgetown, and later matchups between Memphis and Tennessee, and UAB and Duke.
