Texas drops one spot in updated AP Top 25

An unconvincing win didn’t help the Horns improve in the polls, but Texas does remain ranked among the top 10.

NCAA Football: Texas at Texas Tech Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

After escaping Lubbock with an improbable 63-56 comeback win over the Texas Tech Red Raiders in overtime on Saturday evening, the Texas Longhorns suffered a slight regression in the updated AP Top 25 Poll, sliding one spot from No. 8 to No. 9.

Texas remains ranked among the top 10 in the Amway Coaches Poll, as well, holding true at No. 9.

Unsurprisingly, Texas is now the top-ranked team in the Big 12, ahead of No. 17 Oklahoma State and No. 18 Oklahoma. Kansas State (1-1) and Baylor (1-0) are each receiving votes, as well. Now one of only three undefeated Big 12 programs, along with 2-0 Oklahoma State and 1-0 Baylor, the Longhorns will return to Darrell K Royal—Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday morning to host the TCU Horned Frogs (0-1).

Kickoff between the Horns and Horned Frogs is set for 11 a.m. CT.
