The Longhorns checked in at No. 21 after beating the TCU Horned Frogs on Saturday. Now the Longhorns prepare for their annual Red River Rivalry game with the Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday in Dallas, Texas.
The Sooners, meanwhile, checked in at No. 6 after beating Kansas State to remain undefeated so far this season.
The other Big 12 team in the Top 25 is Oklahoma State, which defeated Baylor on Saturday in a matchup of Top 25 teams. The Cowboys took a big jump, moving to No. 12 after spending last week at No. 19.
