By the TexasFootball.com Staff

No. 1 in our Power Poll had an easy time with a pushover. But Nos. 2-5 battled amongst themselves for positioning, with particularly surprising results.

What did it do to our Power Poll, our weekly ranking of the 12 FBS programs in Texas? Let's take a look.

DCTF's 2012 Texas College Power Poll — Week Eleven

# School Last Week Rank
1 Texas A&M Aggies 1
Greg Tepper: I hate to be Debbie Downer, but I'm not sure Johnny Football is the Heisman lock that everyone presumes him to be (and that I think he should be). I think people are underestimating the Notre Dame love-fest that the national media is about to descend upon the country.
t-2 Texas Longhorns 2
Adam Hochfelder: Flat Stanley has a new book out. It's called "Flat Texas."
t-2 TCU Horned Frogs 5
Jake Shaw: The Frogs are seemingly at their best when everyone counts them out.
4 Baylor Bears t-3
Brad Hilliard: On the verge of losing a number of offensive playmakers to graduation, the Bears appear to have found another in Lache Seastrunk.
5 Texas Tech Red Raiders t-3
Greg Tepper: While that's a disappointing loss to Baylor, it's hard to view Tech's season as anything but a step in the right direction. Now, about replacing that quarterback...
6 Rice Owls 6
Adam Hochfelder: Rice is going to a bowl game likely with its 6th win.  Great save for David Bailiff.
7 SMU Mustangs 7
Jake Shaw: June Jones might've secured his job with that win over Tulsa.
8 Houston Cougars 8
Brad Hilliard: It was a perplexing year for U of H, and the confusion will not subside with their new place in the Big East’s quizzically-named West Division next year.
9 UTSA Roadrunners 11
Greg Tepper: Honestly, the only reason UTSA isn't ranked above teams like Rice and SMU in the Power Poll is because they're not bowl-eligible. What a remarkable year for the Roadrunners, and perhaps a sign of big things to come.
10 North Texas Mean Green 9
Jake Shaw: Hopefully this was just a sophomore slump for Dan McCarney.
11 Texas State Bobcats 10
Adam Hochfelder: Ouch. Fran lost to Larry Coker. Last decade, that had BCS implications. Not so much now.
12 UTEP Miners 12
Brad Hilliard: The Price era in El Paso certainly had its high moments, but his retirement will open the door for a much-needed fresh start for the Miner program.
