As expected following their 33-31 home loss to the TCU Horned Frogs, the Texas Longhorns suffered a significant drop in the latest AP Top 25, falling 13 sports from No. 9 to No. 22.
Texas saw the same result in the Amway Coaches Poll, dropping from No. 9 to No. 22.
Texas is one of just three Big 12 teams ranked entering Week 5, along with No. 10 Oklahoma State (3-0, 2-0) and No. 24 Iowa State (2-1, 2-0).
A notable, yet unsurprising exclusion from each poll — the Oklahoma Sooners (1-2, 0-2), which will meet Texas in the Red River Showdown on Saturday in hopes of bouncing back from back-to-back losses to Kansas State and Iowa State to begin Big 12 play.
Saturday will mark the first time Oklahoma has entered the matchup unranked since 2005, when Vince Young’s No. 2-ranked Longhorns had their way with the Sooners, 45-12.
Kickoff between the Longhorns and Sooners is set for Saturday, Oct. 10 at 11 a.m. The game will be televised on FOX.
