Where does your team stand? Updating the 12 Texas FBS college football teams after Nov. 18 games
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. 18 games.
No. 12: UTEP
The Miners showed some signs of life on Saturday. And by that, we mean they only lost by 20.
No. 11: Rice
The Owls showed some signs of life against Old Dominion. And by that we mean they covered the spread in a 24-21 loss.
No. 10: Texas State
The Bobcats got drilled by Arkansas State and face a tougher test next week with Troy.
No. 9: Baylor
The Bears fell to Iowa State and will wrap a dismal season with a loss to TCU next week.
No. 8: UTSA
The Road Runners knocked off a solid Marshall team in a 9-7 slugfest.
No. 7: Texas Tech
No shame in losing to TCU, but the Red Raiders did not even try.
No. 6: SMU
The season is slowly spiraling out of control for the Ponies, who were blown out by Memphis.
No. 5: Houston
Tulane? You lost to Tulane? There are not enough shame bells in the world for Major Applewhite and the Cougars.
No. 4: North Texas
The Mean Green are likely headed for the C-USA championship game and are playing solid football. They survived OT against a really good Army team and moved up a few spots.
No. 3: Texas
The Longhorns are now bowl eligible after getting a nice road win at West Virginia.
No. 2: Texas A&M
The Aggies won at Mississippi to get to 7-4. Will need to upset LSU to get to yet another 8-4 finish.
No. 1: TCU
The Frogs got back on track by dominating Texas Tech.
