Texas got back to its winning ways on Saturday night against Rice, 58-0. It was over before kickoff even occurred, as the Longhorns ran rampant over the Owls.

Despite the big win, the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll kept Texas outside of the top 25. Liberty, Kentucky, TCU, and Virginia Tech all received more votes from the outside of the poll.

The top five remained the same in Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Texas A&M. Michigan State was the biggest mover of the week, darting up eight spots after getting a road win against Miami. BYU moved up seven spots as well after its third consecutive win against the Pac-12 South.
