After falling one spot from No. 21 to No. 22 in last week’s AP Top 25, the Texas Longhorns (5-2, 4-2) enjoyed a two-spot improvement in the latest poll following their second consecutive bye week, rising from No. 22 to No. 20. Losses from then-No. 14 Oklahoma State (5-2, 4-2) and then-No. 21 Liberty on Saturday paved the way for Texas’ improvement.

Similarly, Texas climbed two spots in the latest Amway Coaches Poll, rising from No. 23 to No. 21.

The Longhorns remain one of four Big 12 teams currently ranked, along with No. 14 Oklahoma (6-2, 5-2), No. 15 Iowa State (6-2, 5-1), and No. 21 Oklahoma State.

Following nearly three weeks away from the game field, the Longhorns are set to get back in action in Austin on Saturday morning against No. 15 Iowa State. Kickoff between the Longhorns and Cyclones is set for 11 a.m. CT on ABC.
