Cougs Win Knocks Longhorns Off AP 25

Rafael Suanes-USA TODAY Sports

The Cougars didn't just send Texas home with their horns laid low, they also kicked them out of the top 25 poll and gained a spot in the "honorable mentions" list.

If you don't keep up with the AP polls from week to week, this chart should help you see the changes. We'll keep you updated for the rest of the season on Monday mornings.

Texas (29?)

Last week, Texas sat comfortably at the number 16 spot, just under Oklahoma. After their crushing defeat in Provo on Saturday though, they were dropped over 10 spots. That's a huge blow to the Longhorn's hope at reaching a BCS bowl (assuming that that's every team's ultimate goal). They'll have to hope for a lot more than just a perfect season from here on out. Other key teams will have to suffer similar defeats and that's not likely going to happen as easily as it did in Provo.

BYU (32?)

The rankings did a lot of good for BYU though. Whereas last week we didn't even make the paragraph of honorable mentions,receiving no votes, we ranked seventh this week among those (with 18 votes). If we win our next big games in a similar fashion, we could very well see the ole' Cougars make it into the top 25 table before the season's up. We'd likely still not make it to a BCS bowl this year, but it would put us in a very good position to make the cute going into the 2014 season.

Do you think we'll make it before season's end? Leave us a comment below.
