It was an up and down season for the Texas Longhorns, in which one week they were ranked in either the AP Poll or, later, the College Football Playoff committee’s rankings, then not, and then back again, and then not, again. That’s just how life is here in Austin in 2022.
However, the Longhorns closed out the regular season ranked No. 20 in the latest CFP standings.
Next up, Texas’ bowl matchup.
