Poll Report: Movin' on up

The Longhorns moved up to No. 6 in both polls on Sunday after the 28-10 win in the Red River Rivalry.

There are now only four teams between the Texas Longhorns and No. 1 Ohio State. The Buckeyes remain at the top, but those four teams did some shifting over the past weekend. The change was sparked by No. 2 Auburn's 27-10 loss to Arkansas. The Razorbacks moved up into the Top 25, debuting at 23rd in the Coaches' and appearing all the way up at 17th in the AP. Auburn now sits at 10th in the Coaches' and 11th in the AP.

There's disagreement in the Top 5 between the polls as to where those four teams should be. The Florida Gators jumped from the 5th spot to 2nd in the AP Poll with their 23-10 win over LSU, but are still 3rd behind USC in the Coaches'. The Trojans pulled out a 26-20 win over the Washington Huskies. The Coaches' also has West Virginia 3rd, just ahead of Michigan, while the AP has the Wolverines at No. 3.

The Longhorns' opponent, Oklahoma, fell to 22nd in the Coaches' and 23rd in the AP. Two additional Big 12 teams are in this week's Top 25 Polls. No. 20/21 Nebraska solidified their place in the Polls with a 28-14 win over Iowa State, while the undefeated Missouri Tigers continue to creep their way up the rankings, sitting at 21st in the Coaches' and 19th in the AP.
