Longhorns Daily News: Urban Meyer: Texas and other one-loss teams are CFP contenders

Urban Meyer has had a lot to say about the Texas Longhorns this season. He’s been among Texas’ leaders of the bandwagons as the Longhorns have (mostly) cruised to an 8-1 start.

And Texas, like other one-loss teams – notably, Alabama and Oregon – are as good as any of the College Football Playoff committee’s current top-four, Meyer said earlier this week.

“To say Alabama, Texas, and Oregon are not as good as anyone in the country right now — you’re mistaken,” Meyer said, according to On3. “Because you push play and you watch the film, the All-22 against who they play and the style of offense, defense, and the athletes on the field. Those three teams, to me, to say they’re not in the top four, you’re mistaken. At the end of the day, I think they will be.”
