Week 6 Power Rankings

For a lot of Roundup Squads, the season is half over. We’re starting to understand who or what everybody is in this confusing mix of forward passing nonsense. We’ll start at the top and rank’em one to twelve. Prepare to be offended.


1. Texas

Tom keep piling up signature wins. Texas dominated the Sooners for two quarters and then hung on to get the win and thrust themselves to the top of the Big 12. Baylor’s up next.

2. Texas A&M

The Aggies somehow dominated undefeated Kentucky but fell had to win in overtime. The Aggies are better defensively, but the offense needs work.


3. TCU

Coming off a bye week the Frogs welcome Texas Tech to Fort Worth in part of what’s become an odd series as of late. TCU’s still a mystery. Can they keep up with Tech in a shootout?


4. Houston

The Cougars continue to show that when interested, they can pound just about anybody they run into. They survived Tulsa’s best shot and then crushed the Golden Hurricanes with a flurry in the fourth.

5. North Texas

We’re not sure what happened to North Texas in El Paso, the Miners had the ball with a chance to win in the fourth, but neither did anyone else as the game was on beIN. Southern Miss comes to Denton this week.

6. Texas Tech

Tech had a bye as well, prepping for a road trip to TCU. Word is the Red Raiders will have all three quarterbacks available, including Alan Bowman off his partially collapsed lung. This is a big one for Kingsbury.


7. Baylor

Baylor’s defense made Kansas State look competent. That takes work. Baylor moved to four wins and closer to bowl eligibility; they’ll travel to Texas Saturday.


8. SMU

UCF was never going to be an easy task for the Mustangs. The quarterback position appears murkier than ever with Ben Hicks splitting time with William Brown. SMU has a bye week before a tricky trip to Tulane.



Winning ugly is still winning, and UTSA will take it. They survived their worst offensive output in recent memory to boat race Rice. Now comes a matchup with Louisiana Tech, a team that will put pressure on the Roadrunners.


10. Rice

Whatever Rice’s momentum, it’s now grinding to a halt. UAB comes to Houston in a game with two teams who have similar mentalities but go about it in different ways. UAB is more ready built to play physical. We think it’ll be a tough Saturday for the Owls.

11. Texas State

Stop us if you’ve seen this movie before, Texas State plays a half of horrible football then dangles a little hope in front of us but the result is another double-digit loss. Time is drawing near Everett.


12. UTEP

We’re tempted to move the Miners up, but we can’t until they get over the hump. UTEP gets a bye week so Miner fans won’t have to avoid the Sun Bowl on Saturday.

The Roundup…
