Kentucky’s 87-74 win over Ole Miss on Tuesday night was its first of the season over a team with an RPI in the top 50, and the victory did much to help the Cats’ RPI.
According to CBS Sports, Kentucky jumped from No. 62 in the RPI to No. 45 after the win in Oxford. Ole Miss dropped from 24th to 37th.
Duke, Kansas, Miami, Arizona and Florida round out the top five.
