Texas Climbs To #12 In Coaches, #14 In AP Polls

Primarily by virtue of avoiding the upset bug which visited Arkansas and Wisconsin this weekend, Texas started slowly climbing up the polls in the inevitable way teams facing unimpressive OOC slates in September tend to do. The Horns are now up to #12 in the USA Today coaches poll and #14 in the AP. Not too much dramatic movement in the polls beyond that, other than Arkansas experiencing a near-historic tumble out of the AP Top 25 after suffering an overtime loss to Louisiana-SomewhereOrOther on a fourth-down touchdown which looked awfully familiar.

The Big 12 keeps five teams (OU, WVU, Texas, KSU, TCU) in the Top 15 (coaches) or 16 (AP), the only conference with so many teams so highly ranked.

I'll be back in the next day or two with my weekly ballot for the SBNation BlogPoll. If you have any ranking tips or suggestions for someone like me who didn't have much of an opportunity to watch much football on Saturday beyond that yawner in DKRTMS, please leave them in the comments. I do take them highly under advisement.
