247Sports reranked the Big 12 four weeks into the season so you don’t have to.
Of course, after a hit-and-miss performance by the Texas Longhorns so far, they’ve gradually moved their way into the conference’s “mid-tier” level, according to 247Sports.
From 247Sports: “After getting curb-stomped by Arkansas, a change was made at quarterback Since then, the Longhorns have looked much better with Casey Thompson at the helm. The schedule only gets harder from here, though. Texas plays all of its toughest remaining games on the road. The next three weeks are critical ‘show me’ games against TCU, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. The Longhorns will have to be road warriors with a brutal upcoming schedule and it’s something I’ll be keeping a close eye on week-to-week.”
