The first AP Poll of the season is going to be released on Saturday at 9 a.m. local time, and the big question is where Texas and TCU be ranked when the first batch of rankings are made public.
A good place to start would be the Coaches' Poll, where the Texas Longhorns were picked at No. 15 while the No. 17 spot belonged to TCU. There usually isn't much disparity between the two polls, so fans can expect to be in the ballpark of their coach's ratings.
Another gauge is the SB Nation Studios Top 25 Countdown, which has TCU as the No. 11 team in the nation heading in to the 2012 season with the Longhors coming in at No. 13.
Of course there is no perfect way to gauge the media poll before it is released, but all signs point to the Horned Frogs and Longhorns beginning the season in the Top 20.
