Now sitting at 6-3 on the season with one game remaining — Saturday’s contest against Kansas in Lawrence — Texas has only one loss to a team outside of the College Football Playoff rankings as Iowa State ranks No. 7 and Oklahoma ranks No. 11. Oklahoma State at No. 22 gives Texas one win over a team in the College Football Playoff rankings.
The top four teams remain unchanged from last week with Texas A&M on the outside looking in. With Saturday’s game against Ole Miss postponed, A&M will only have one more chance to impress the committee — a road game against Tennessee on Dec. 19.
Since the Volunteers are 2-6 on the season, the Aggies will likely need a loss from one of the Crimson Tide, Fighting Irish, Tigers, to Buckeyes to make it into the top four.
