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.
