Memphis Falls to #2 in RPI, Moves Up to #2 in Pomeroy - #1 in Nation in Defense
Memphis has given up the top spot in the RPI to North Carolina based on the Marshall game and the Oklahoma loss at home to Kansas State.
While I doubt Memphis will regain the top spot through the rest of the season, I also doubt they will fall below the top 5 which is all that is really important.
On another note, the Tigers have moved up considerably in Ken Pomeroy's rankings to #2 behind the Kansas Jayhawks. Memphis' move has been on the strength of their defense which is now ranked #1 nationally.
