    As of Friday night this is what the rankings will look like come next Tuesday. I'll update this again on Sunday night though I've already made assumptions on results for Sat/Sun so it shouldn't change much unless someone gets upset.

    2 USC 75.12
    3 UCLA 74.04
    4 Oklahoma 72.43

    6 Baylor 64.98
    7 Texas 62.52
    8 North Carolina 58.96
    9 Georgia 58.94
    10 Texas A&M 56.66

    16th with 43.13 points - that would have distanced them from 17th a good bit and probably would have locked them into the top 16.

    The thing that will hurt them the most this week was most of their top wins dropped in the rankings over the past week.

    Notre Dame should drop to 12th now after the NC State loss?
    still cannot get that ND is ranked ahead of Duke for example...

    This should be it - once you get below 25 there is a greater margin for error because not all the top 8 wins are against top 75 teams so you have to make an educated guess about where they would fall in the rankings and then determine points. Teams with an * beside their name are teams that fall into that category so their points may be off a bit.

    wow big drop from Oregon. I thought they were safely in the tournament but looks like they are going to have to sweat it out again this year.

    The Utah loss hurt as did the rankings using the top 8 wins instead of the 7 from a week ago. Oregon only has 3 wins over top 75 teams (Boise State, Drake, New Mexico) after that it's slim pickings.

    and New Mexico just lost to UNLV so they may be headed out. Oregon needs to beat Stanford for sure.

    Elon will make the tournament though because they will win the southern conference.

    It was a combination of a few teams that they beat going down in the rankings and 1 of their losses dropping a few spots and thus counting against them more.

    8 best wins and change in points from prior week
    Tennessee - no change
    Illinois - down 2 points
    Tulsa - down 1.1 points
    Florida - no change
    Vanderbilt - no change
    Georgia - down 3 points
    Tennessee - no change
    Alabama (added this week)

    5 losses - only change in points was Illinois which dropped a few spots in the rankings so that loss count as .3 points as opposed to .2 from the previous week.

    If they sweep the Mississippi schools this weekend they should get a nice bump from the road win at Miss St which is good because next week a 9th best win is added in.

    Artificially enhanced ranking. I was hoping Minnesota could beat them.

    Auburn is ranked ahead of Tulsa but since they won at Tulsa and beat Auburn at home the Tulsa win gives them slightly more points.
