Buffalo 71, @Syracuse 59 - a signature road win, and the whispers about Buffalo's at-large chances are now roars. This is very real, and they probably have a couple losses in the bank that they can afford to absorb and still be good
@Missouri 71, Xavier 56
Stephen F Austin 59, @Baylor 58
@Oklahoma 83, Creighton 70
@Santa Clara 102, USC 92 (2OT)
...there were actually plenty of games on this day, but most involving your garden variety mid-majors, and no real upsets among them.
Looking around, North Texas (11-1 now) might be the CUSA fave, beat UNM on the road...Murray St beats Evansville, them and Belmont are headed on a collision course in the OVC. The Citadel moves to 8-2, the Big South could be lit this year. Vermont beats Bonaventure in OT.
