State of Texas team power rankings - Week 1

Power rankings are all the buzz and with tonight’s College Football Season rankings being released, I wanted to do a power ranking of all teams across all the sports in Texas!

  1. Houston Texans (NFL) - I don’t feel good putting the Texans over the Cougars in the first ever power rankings, but I have to based on the five-game winning streak. I know the Coogs are also riding a five-game winning streak, but beating the Jags and Dolphins handedly put the Texans in the No.1 spot.

  2. Houston Cougars (AAC/FBS) - Gosh, that Texas Tech loss stings so much right now. The Coogs have dismantled teams with an offense that will give any defensive coordinator nightmares and a defense that has Ed Oliver on it. The UCF vs UH title game is going to be so much fun to watch.

  3. Texas Longhorns (Big 12/FBS) - That was a rough defensive night for the Longhorns. They controlled their own destiny in terms of CFP rankings, but they were outplayed by a Cornelius. How do you not figure it out that the QB is going to keep it on every short yardage situation?! The Longhorns can still win the Big 12 and that journey restarts this Saturday against West Virginia.

  4. Houston Dynamo (MLS) - It was a disappointing season in the MLS, but your Dynamo won the U.S. Open Cup AND kept the Galaxy out of the MLS playoffs so that gives them a sweet ranking to end the season!

  5. Texas ATM (SEC/FBS) - Beating the Mississippi schools is a must if you want to do anything in the SEC West and the Aggies failed on Saturday. It was a tough spot, but I still have them fifth in the state because of marquee wins like Kentucky and only losing to Clemson by 2 points.

  6. San Antonio Spurs (NBA) - I mean they’re only 3-2 on the season, but the other Texas teams in the NBA are so bad that I have no choice but to put them up this high. I hope the Spurs have a good season and face-off against the Lakers in the playoffs so we can see if DeMar can exercise his LeBron East demons.

  7. Dallas Mavericks (NBA) - Luka! Luka! Luka! Oh, they are also 2-4 on the season.

  8. Houston Rockets (NBA) - Carmelo is scoring and they look like like the Carmelo Knicks. Hard pass.

  9. MLB Free Agency (MLB) - Can’t wait for Bryce Harper and Clayton Kershaw to sign with the Astros.

  10. Texas Rangers (MLB) - Guys, stop trying to make everything about you. This World Series tweet was so dumb. Great stuff pointing out how big losers you are.

  11. Dallas Cowboys (NFL) - LOLOLOLOLOLOL Amari Cooper for a first?!?!
