The Texas Longhorns are the top academic team in the NCAA Tournament

'Horns are only team with perfect Academic Progress and Graduation Success Rate.

Brendan Maloney-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Longhorns come into the NCAA Tournament as a No. 6 seed, but they're ranked at the top when it comes to the classroom.

Academic Progress Rate tracks the progress of student-athletes in school and can lead to penalties if the program doesn't measure up. Graduate Success Rate measures the number of freshman enrollees who graduate.

Texas also led the Big 12 this year with five academic Big 12 picks.
