Going backwards: Texas now ranked 19th in the CFP rankings

Posted November 6th, 2018


Texas dropped two spots in this week’s College Football Playoff rankings, which were released on Tuesday evening.

The Longhorns were ranked 19th on a list that will determine who appears in college football’s playoff. Last week, Texas made its first-ever appearance in a ranking that debuted in 2014. Texas, though, slipped from the 17th slot following a 42-41 loss to West Virginia.

West Virginia was seated ninth in a ranking topped by Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Michigan. The Big 12 was also represented by No. 6 Oklahoma.

Texas (6-3; 4-2 Big 12) will travel to Texas Tech (5-4; 3-3) on Saturday night. The Longhorns, who have lost two straight games, are ranked 15th in the Associated Press’ national poll.
