Poll Report: Still No. 1

The BCS standings are out and the Texas Longhorns are still No. 1. In addition, the Horns are still the unanimous No. 1 in the AP Poll and hold all but three first place votes from the Coaches.

Texas was taken to the wire but came out the victor against Oklahoma State, staying undefeated and keeping the top spot in the BCS, AP and Coaches rankings.

The top four are unanimous across all three polls, with Texas being followed by Alabama, Penn State and Oklahoma. There are three different No. 5s, with USC there in the BCS, Florida in AP and Texas Tech, the Longhorns' opponent this coming weekend, in the Coaches, setting up a top five match-up in Lubbock.

After losing to the Horns, Oklahoma State fell but remained in the top ten, sitting at No. 9 in the AP and BCS and No. 10 in the Coaches.

With Kansas getting blown out by the Red Raiders and falling from the Top 25, the only other Big 12 team in the rankings is Missouri. The Tigers are 14th in all three polls.
