Week 5 Power Rankings

Hard to argue sample size anymore. For most teams, the season is almost half over. Dare God; we're three months from no football. Don't think about that. Focus on our random, un-scientific Power rankings.


1. TCU

The Frogs had a bye week. Hopefully, they didn't spend it reading press clippings. The Mountaineers come calling this weekend. Prep for full Holgo.

2. Texas A&M

We already regret this ranking, but we've typed it so whatever. The Bama smashing machine invades Kyle Field. We're expecting a drop next week.


3. Texas

Texas welcomes a very good K-State squad in Herman's first real Big 12 tester. No, beating Iowa State and the worst quarterback in recent memory doesn't count. 


4. Texas Tech

Tech stumbled against Okie State, but not like a typical Tech stumble, where the Red Raiders score 60 but lose by 20, an actual competitive stumble. 


5. SMU

SMU hit a different gear against UConn. Now they travel to H-Town for a real showdown against the Cougars. 



Coming off a bye week, the Roadrunners get Southern Miss at home. The next two weeks are critical for UTSA's CUSA dreams. 


7. Houston

The Coogs beat Temple in Philly. They broke in a new quarterback. Houston can jump back up with a win over SMU this Mustangs. 


8. North Texas

Fresh off the biggest win in Seth Littrell's tenure, the Mean Green get a week off before a showdown with UTSA.


9. Baylor

Another week, another loss. This week Baylor won't lose, they're on a bye week. Call it progress.

10. Texas State

The Bobcats lost to Wyoming on Saturday, thanks to a couple of defensive and special teams touchdowns. ULM this week at home gives the 'Cats their best chance at a win. 


11. Rice

The Owls are in disarray. They can't score or stop people from scoring. With that in mind, best of luck against Army. 


12. UTEP

A SHOE HAS FALLEN! Sean Kugler is out in El Paso. Fare thee well, Sean. You won't need to suffer on Saturdays anymore.
