Where Texas lands in first CFB Playoff rankings

The first College Football Playoff selection committee rankings were released on Tuesday.

Texas checks in at No. 24 in the initial rankings, marking the first time the Longhorns made the cut under head coach Steve Sarkisian.

Four Big 12 Conference teams made the CFP Top 25. No. 7 TCU, No. 13 Kansas State and No. 18 Oklahoma State join No. 24 Texas in the rankings.

The Horns have a tough slate in front of them as matchups against the Wildcats and Horned Frogs loom. The next couple of games can skyrocket Texas up the rankings or end their hopes of a Big 12 title run.

The last time Texas finished the season ranking inside the committee’s top 25 poll was back in 2020 after a 7-3 season and Alamo Bowl victory.

Here is a complete look at the playoff rankings through Week 9 of the college football season.
