The Longhorns weren’t punished or promoted in the polls following a narrow win over Kansas.

Despite needing a last-second field goal from Cameron Dicker to escape with a 50-48 win over the Kansas Jayhawks, the Texas Longhorns remained ranked No. 15 nationally in the latest AP Top 25.

Texas remained ranked No. 15 in the Amway Coaches Poll, as well.

Notably, Texas now trails Baylor and Oklahoma in the polls, as the undefeated Bears — previously ranked No. 18 — climbed to No. 14 following a 45-27 road win over Oklahoma State. Oklahoma is still positioned at No. 5 nationally.

Following their brief return to Austin, the Longhorns will be back on the road next Saturday for a meeting with the TCU Horned Frogs (3-3, 1-2). TCU has won four of the last five games against Texas, but the Horned Frogs enter this season’s matchup slogging through a two-game skid after back-to-back road losses to Iowa State and Kansas State.

TCU has lost each of its last three games against ranked opponents and is projected to fall short this time around, too, as No. 15 Texas is slightly favored with a 53.9 percent win probability, per ESPN’s FPI.
