Wisconsin remains one behind the Seminoles at No. 6 in the two polls, while California stays at No. 7 in the AP (No. 8 in Coaches). Coming off a 63-28 victory over UNLV, undefeated Utah holds onto its No. 9 position in the AP and No. 10 spot in the coaches' poll, just behind the Longhorns in each. Rounding out the AP top tier is No. 10 Georgia (No. 7 in Coaches), who beat Arkansas 20-14.
Aside from the vanquished Red Raiders, who dropped from the polls after falling victim to Texas, the Big 12 South had a favorable week in the polls as Texas A&M (6-1, 4-0) moved up a slot to No. 16 in the AP rankings (No. 17 in Coaches) after a 29-26 overtime win in Colorado and Oklahoma State (6-1, 3-1) grabbed a No. 20 ranking in both polls with a 20-17 win over Big 12 North-leading Missouri (4-3, 2-2).
The Longhorns (6-1, 3-1) travel to Colorado (4-3, 1-3) Saturday for a 2:30 p.m. (CDT) kick-off that will be televised regionally on ABC.
