Texas Tech's 37-27 road victory over West Virginia on Saturday coupled with a rash of upsets across the country bumped the Red Raiders up six spots to No. 10 in the Associated Press poll and No. 9 in the USA Today coaches poll.
Texas Tech (7-0 overall, 4-0 in Big 12) also debuted at No. 10 in the initial 2013 BCS standings unveiled Sunday.
Three of the Red Raiders' final five opponents are also ranked.
Baylor (6-0, 3-0) is No. 6 in the AP poll and No. 8 in the BCS. Oklahoma State (5-1, 2-1) is No. 19 in both and Tech's next opponent, Oklahoma (6-1, 3-1), checked in at No. 17 in the AP, No. 15 in the BCS.
