Texas had an impressive bounce-back performance in Week 5.
After suffering a heartbreaking overtime loss to Texas Tech in Week 4, the Longhorns played a complete game in all three phases to defeat West Virginia 38-20.
Steve Sarkisian’s squad improved to 3-2 on the year and is now preparing to face Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry on Oct. 8.
Texas appeared in Top 25 rankings earlier in the season, but dropped out after the loss to Texas Tech. It appears the Longhorns are inching their way back into the rankings as they received votes in the latest USA TODAY Sports’ Coaches Poll this week.
