K-State was probably out until it routed newly minted No. 1 Kansas in Manhattan on Valentine's Day. Though it's 1-6 against the RPI top 50 and just 6-6 in the Big 12, that win was incredibly impressive and is fresh in the minds of committee members. The Wildcats could use a win over Nebraska on Feb. 23. Best win:
Kansas (RPI: 1) Worst loss:
Colorado (RPI: 91) Mitigating factor: Jacob Pullen's beard. Verdict:
In. The late-season win over Kansas will sway the committee.
