CPP Power Rankings Week 2

Each week on Tuesdays, I will be posting my power rankings from all the power conferences including the A10 and AAC. Also at the end of each ranking I will add a few remarks on different team’s movements.

A10

1                    Rhode Island

2                    VCU

3                    St Bonaventure

4                    Davidson

5                    St Louis

6                    St Joes

7                    Dayton

8                    La Salle

9                    Richmond

10                George Mason

11                GW

12                Umass

13                Fordham

14                Duquesne

St Bonaventure sits at #3 even with an upset loss to Niagara because they played without their best player Jaylen Adams.

St Louis had a great showing in the 2k classic beating VTech, but falling to Providence in a competitive championship game. They are at #5 for a reason.

AAC

1                    Wichita State

2                   Cincy

3                    Temple

4                    SMU

5                    Tulane

6                    Uconn

7                    UCF

8                    Houston

9                    Memphis

10                Tulsa

11                ECU

12                USF

Temple wins the Charleston Classic to start the season off right, after the disappointing season they had last year. Temple is #3 in the AAC after the week they had.

Tulane was the worst team in the conference last year, but after a solid week I have them at #5 at least until they lose.

Houston and UCF had the opposite of expected first weeks dropping them in the rankings.

ACC

1                    Duke

2                    Miami

3                    Notre Dame

4                    UNC

5                    Louisville

6                    Virginia

7                    NC State

8                    VTech

9                    Syracuse

10                  BC

11                  GTech

12                  FSU

13                  Clemson

14                  Wake Forest

15                  Pitt

Pitt and Wake are terrible, as the rest of the conference is pretty straight forward.

Big 12

1                    Kansas

2                    West Virginia

3                    Texas

4                    Oklahoma

5                    TCU

6                    Baylor

7                    Texas Tech

8                   Oklahoma State

9                    Kansas State

10                 Iowa State

Iowa State starts the season off on an awful note to find themselves at the bottom.

Texas Tech dismantled Northwestern in the HOF tip off Naismith championship, but it was not enough for them to jump up to the top in my opinion.

Big East

1                    Nova

2                    Xavier

3                    Seton Hall

4                    Creighton

5                    Providence

6                    Butler

7                    St Johns

8                    Depaul

9                    Marquette

10                Gtown

Creighton took out two top 25 teams already, and look to beat their third in the CBE HOF Classic championship Tuesday Night over #22 Baylor. However, the top three teams are too good to be passed by Creighton right now.

BIG Ten

1                    Michigan State

2                    Minnesota

3                    Purdue

4                    Maryland

5                    Michigan

6                    Northwestern

7                    Penn State

8                    Illinois

9                    Ohio State

10                 Wisconsin

11                 Iowa

12                 Rutgers

13                 Indiana

14                 Nebraska

MSU and Minnesota battle for the top spot as MSU comes out on top barely.

Iowa had a high ranking until they were upset by ULL on Monday.

PAC 12

1                    Zona

2                    USC

3                    UCLA

4                    Oregon

5                    Utah

6                    ASU

7                    Oregon State

8                    Stanford

9                    Washington

10                Colorado

11                Wash State

12                Cal

UCLA has struggled early this year with the talent they possess, but they are still #3.

ASU sky rockets after a great week to open up their season.

SEC

1                    Florida

2                    Kentucky

3                    Texas A/M

4                    Alabama

5                    Arkansas

6                    Ole Miss

7                    Georgia

8                    South Carolina

9                    Missouri

10                LSU

11                Auburn

12                Miss St

13                Tennessee

14                Vandy

Florida and Kentucky are basically tied at the top, but the Gators surpass the Wildcats this week.

Arkansas has turned into a legitimate contender heading into the PK80 later this week.
