Texas has 12 FBS teams. Each week we will rank them based on season-long performance, the prior game, and success relative to their level. These are the rankings after Nov. 4 games. 

No. 12: UTEP

The beating goes on for the winless Miners. North Texas took them to the woodshed.

No. 11: Rice

The Owls at least put up a fight against Southern Miss. Alas, it was still a losing effort.

No. 10: Texas State

The Bobcats are playing better football, but lost 33-30 to Georgia State. At least it wasn't George Strait.

No. 9: Baylor

The Bears will probably have to be happy with that win over Kansas. They were competitive against Tech, but could not get the job done.

No. 8: UTSA

The Road Runners lost at home to improving UAB. They would fall on this list except there is nowhere to go with the teams behind them being putrid.

No. 7: North Texas 

The Mean Green are likely headed for the C-USA championship game and are playing solid football.

No. 6: Texas Tech

The Red Raiders got back to .500 with a win over lowly Baylor and need one more victory for bowl eligibility.

No. 5: SMU

For a second straight week, the Ponies threw a scare into a superior opponent, but came up short in a 43-40 loss to Navy.

No. 4: Texas

The Longhorns are now 5-5 after taking out woeful Kansas. A trip to West Virginia and Tech remain as the Horns seek bowl eligibility.

No. 3: Houston

The Cougars were off. Tulane and Navy are left on the schedule.

No. 2: Texas A&M

The Aggies thumped New Mexico, but then again, they were supposed to thump New Mexico. 

No. 1: TCU

The Frogs dropped their second of the season, losing to OU and all but killing their playoff hopes.
