Notes
Last Week
1.Texas Longhorns
Record: 2 - 1
Notes: A one-point loss to national contender Alabama is the only blemish for the Longhorns through three weeks.
Last Week: #5
2.Texas A&M Aggies
Record: 2 - 1
Notes: The Aggies put an upset loss to App State in the rear-view mirror with a win over ranked Miami. The offense remains a concern.
Last Week: #6
3.TCU Horned Frogs
Record: 2 - 0
Notes: TCU is the only undefeated FBS program in Texas at 2-0. The Horned Frogs were idle in Week 3.
Last Week: #3
4.Baylor Bears
Record: 2 - 1
Notes: Baylor rode a powerful running attack to a blowout win over Texas State. Blake Shapen and the passing attack must improve to repeat as Big 12 champs.
Last Week: #4
5.Texas Tech Red Raiders
Record: 2 - 1
Notes: The first loss of the Joey McGuire era came in Week 3 against a ranked NC State squad. Donovan Smith struggled against the Wolfpack defense.
Last Week: #1
6.SMU Mustangs
Record: 2 - 1
Notes: Maryland handed Rhett Lashlee his first loss in charge of the Mustangs. A home game against rival SMU and former head coach Sonny Dykes is on deck.
Last Week: #2
7.Rice Owls
Record: 2 - 1
Notes: Break up the Owls! Rice scored an impressive victory over Louisiana to build a two-game winning streak.
Last Week: #11
8.UTSA Roadrunners
Record: 1 - 2
Notes: Jeff Traylor's squad hung tight for nearly three quarters against Texas. The UTSA schedule lightens up a bit after a tough three-game stretch to open 2022.
Last Week: #8
9.Houston Cougars
Record: 1 - 2
Notes: Houston, you have a problem. Kansas ran past the Cougars in Week 3.
Last Week: #7
10.North Texas Mean Green
Record: 2 - 2
Notes: A blowout loss on the road to UNLV puts Seth Littrell and his Mean Green back at square one.
Last Week: #9
11.Texas State Bobcats
Record: 1 - 2
Notes: A loss to Baylor was expected, but the Bobcats should've scored more points in seven trips into Bears territory.
Last Week: #10
12.UTEP Miners
Record: 1 - 3
Notes: The Miners entered the season with high hopes. A 1-3 start to the season squashed most of those dreams.
