Appearances at #1

This graph from an AP story caught my attention:

The Sooners remained No. 1 in the new AP poll Sunday, their record 97th time at the top. They had 51 of a possible 65 first-place votes, eight more than a week earlier when they broke a tie with Notre Dame for 95 appearances at No. 1.

If OU's number 1 among the No. 1s, where does Texas rank? 

Eighth, it turns out, and a distant eighth at that.  In nearly 1,000 AP college football polls published since 1936, the Horns have been ranked No. 1 just 42 times.  We're third among the Big XII teams -- Nebraska ranks fifth, with 70 No. 1s. 

Just some interesting trivia as we head into Saturday.  Hook 'em!
