Tomorrow's Top 25 Today: Texas among teams gets bumped into college colleges

It was not sweet, but Texas was kind of Saturday, which has opened an opportunity to compete for a Big 12 championship. After striking Iowa State 24-10, Longhorns is set for a move and can break top 10 in the new AP Top 25 college football rankings.

Start quarterback Sam Ehlinger was struck out of the game with an injury, but Shane Buechele managed to keep things solid in the second half and Longhorns cruised into a victory in one of only a few games between the ranked teams in week 12. Beating Iowa State eliminated cyclones from fighting the Big 12 title game and set up a win-and-go scenario when Texas plays Kansas next week in the regular season’s finals.

As a loss team it’s already hard to claim that the 201

8 season has shown that Texas is “back”. The win against Oklahoma in the Red River Showdown and the chance to take a shot at the Big 12 title when the conference holds the Dallas league game on December 1 marks a significant improvement for the Tom Herman deal, but these are all still building blocks on the way to making the championship resistance Expectation, not a party.

West Virginia’s loss for Oklahoma State has opened the door to Texas, and it is possible that even headlines between the two teams may not be crucial when the mountaineers’ ranking is adjusted Sunday morning. The location of the two Big 12 teams is among the biggest issues for AP voters, along with Cincinnati after losing to UCF and whether the army will break top 25.

Here we think the new AP Top 25 will come to look at sunday:

1. Alabama (Last week – 1) : The only question will be if the tide is still unanimous # 1 given the slow start to Citadel and 10-10 half-time in a 50-17 victory.

2. Clemson (2): For a team with so much explosiveness in the skills positions, Clemson’s most reliable asset remains its defense. Duke made a great effort to slow down the tiger’s field play early, but never saw a chance to get offensive against a Clemson unit that proved to be among the best in the country.

3. Notre Dame (3) : All about 36-3 win saw Irish championship caliber.

4. Michigan (4) : There is reason to be concerned about the offense’s touchdown conversion rate in the red zone, but surviving for a victory is good enough to create a winning and in-state against Ohio State next week.

5. Georgia (5): Hard to imagine there will be a bigger takeout for voters from Bulldog’s 66-27 win against UMass.

6. Oklahoma (6) : There will be many critics pointing to Sooner’s 55-40 victory against Kansas as a reason to doubt Oklahoma’s national championship chops, but that there should be no major adjustment in the polls.

7. Washington State (8) : The Cougars are currently in action against Arizona.

8. Ohio State (9): No team has made 10-1 as difficult as Ohio State, which has not looked fully synchronized or dominant in several weeks but stays right in the middle of the national championship with a chance to win Big Ten East next week in Michigan. A 52-51 overtime win in Maryland will not inspire any major moves in the AP Top 25, but it does not change the opportunity ahead next Saturday.

9. LSU (10) : Do not expect a lot of changes for LSU after a routine win against Rice.

10. UCF (11): You can only play the schedule you have and the riders have once again gone through their division and climbed the AAC East for the second straight year after leaving Cincinnati’s second loss of the season. The biggest oppressors will take away from the UCF’s national stage win is a higher regard to the defensive front, which dominated all night against Bearcats.

11. Texas (13): A level of respect for Iowa State should anchoring an increase in Tom Herman’s Longhorns rankings, which was the better team all night in a potential kickdown against cyclones.

12. West Virginia (7): Like Texas, West Virginia took a top 10 ranking to Stillwater, Oklahoma. And like Texas, it will fall from the top 10 after a loss in the hands of the cowboys.

13. Syracuse (12): Votes must take into account the damage to Eric Dungey when he ranks the appeal, but also ignores that the wrinkle in the score against Notre Dame should limit how far Syracuse falls after 36-3 the loss of the unanswered Irish.

14. Utah State (14) : Those who promote the fall of Utah State overlooked did not receive much ammunition for the Aggies argument more than expected to win against the Colorado State.

15. Florida (15): Gators never left doubt about Idaho and finished his home schedule with one of the team’s best offensive achievements since Tim Tebow’s exit in a 63-10 victory.

16. Penn State (16): A 20-7 win on Rutgers will not draw any voters, so do not expect any major moves in the ranking.

17. Washington (17): The Seattle Seniors were quite routine and a one-sided victory over former Huskies offensive co-ordinator Jonathan Smith and Oregon State creates a chance for Washington to regain its Pac-12- title jump if it can knock off Washington State next week in Pullman.

18. Utah (21): It’s another impressive victory with Utah down to backups in offensive backfield and rides its hard striking defense to hang out in the Pac-12 competition. Nobody has less conference losses than Utes in Pac-12 South, so now it’s only going to come down to the tiebreakers and next week’s action somewhere else while Utah is preparing for the war’s rivalry against BYU.

19. Kentucky (20) : The voters should not punish Kentucky too much for a close victory against Middle Tennessee because the Blue Raidersna is one of the better conference US teams. But it is possible that the narrow victory opened the door for other three-loss teams to jump Wildcats in the tip.

20. Boise State (23) : Rolling over New Mexico on Friday night sets up a winner-taking-all-game against Utah State next week to determine the winner of the West Division in Mountain West.

21. Northwestern (24): No letdown for Northwestern, even after climbing the Big Ten West and the program’s first ever appearance in the Big Ten title. The wild cats led from Minnesota to Minnesota and continued for the 24-14 win.

22. Mississippi State (25): Bulldogs got their offensive rhythm for the second time in the past month, and scored the score on Arkansas in a 52-6 victory.

23. Army (NR): Last week, Black Knights was the first team among those who received votes outside the top 25. Another victory, even against FCS Colgate, and that 9-2 record will suffice to get them in enough votes to break the rankings this week.

24. Iowa State (18): Will cyclones keep in ranking after a fourth loss? We have seen minor adjustments after losses to higher ranked teams throughout the season, but Iowa State would only be the third four-team team in the AP Top 25 this year if it can hang on.

25. Pittsburgh (NR): Winning ACC Coastal may be enough a title to get voters to raise Pitt in front of Fresno State, UAB and NC State. The panthers also win against Syracuse and Virginia for their credit and run a five-win stretch in six games with the loss, which brings five points to Notre Dame.

Projected to Release: Cincinnati (19), Boston College (22)
