Rank Team Points Record RPI Comments

1 Memphis (6) 30 26-2
(12-0)
6 Didn't really dominate the past two games, but the Tigers remain undefeated and clinch at least a share of the Conference USA title.

2t UTEP 21 18-7
(10-2)
64 A 10-point loss to Memphis and a revenge win over Houston are enough to finally put UTEP into a tie for #2 in our Power 5 rankings.

2t UAB 21 20-5
(10-2)
52 A win over Memphis could lock up an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament for the Blazers. A win over the Tigers could also pivot UAB back into sole possession of the #2 spot in the CUSA-fans.com Power 5. We all know which they'd rather have...

4 Houston 12 18-7
(8-4)
54 The loss @ UTEP dropped Houston to 8-4 in the conference. By no means is their record bad, but this team was expected to do so much more. The early C-USA losses really hurt the Cougars and will likely come back to haunt them.

5 Central Florida 5 12-13
(6-6)
197 At 6-6 the Golden Knights are 1 game up on both Rice and Tulane (5-7) for 5th place in Conference USA. While the records for #5 and down are mediocre we could spin it to show the parity of the league this year...

Also receiving votes: Rice 1

Added this week: UCF

Dropped out: Rice
