Fresh off of their 17-13 home victory over the West Virginia Mountaineers (4-3, 3-3), which marked their third consecutive win, the Texas Longhorns (5-2, 4-2) enjoyed a slight bump in the updated AP Top 25, improving from No. 22 to No. 21.
Interestingly enough, this is just the second time in four years under Tom Herman that the Longhorns have been ranked at this point in the season, with the other instance coming in 2018 when Texas was ranked No. 19.
Elsewhere, after previously sitting as the first team outside of the Amway Coaches Poll, Texas has climbed to spots to No. 24.
Entering the final four weeks of the regular season, Texas is one of four Big 12 teams currently ranked, alongside No. 14 Oklahoma State, No. 17 Iowa State, and No. 18 Oklahoma. Of that bunch, only the Cyclones remain on Texas’ schedule, as the Horns will host Matt Campbell’s club to close the month on Nov. 27.
Next up, though, the No. 21 Longhorns will enjoy their final bye week of the season before visiting the Kansas Jayhawks (0-7, 0-6) one Nov. 21.
