I guess the Buffaloes felt they needed a bad loss on their schedule. In their only game of the week, they lost at No. 159 Utah.
Still, though, an RPI of 25 and a 14-7 record with a SOS of 16 has the Buffs safe for now.
Solid week for my "comfortable" teams, huh? The Bruins were at home against No. 106, but trailed for most of the game and fell in overtime after a late-game comeback.
I still believe it will be difficult to keep UCLA out based on their road wins against Arizona (RPI 4) and Colorado, but its resume continues to get uglier by the week.
Arizona State Sun Devils
They slipped up at Washington, but still have an RPI of 58 and an impressive 6-3 record inside the conference.
California Golden Bears
The Bears enter the fray with home wins against Oregon State and Oregon (RPI 26), but a 68 RPI and 58 SOS isn't impressing many people.
See Golden Bears, California, except change the RPI to 65 and SOS to 62.
A win at UCLA would be massive for the Huskies, who ended a four-game losing streak on Saturday with a home win against ASU.
