Texas moved down to No. 17 in the AP college football rankings.

Apparently a 37-17 win over Wyoming to open the season wasn't enough for the Texas Longhorns to impress AP voters, as the team fell two spots to No. 17 in the latest AP college football rankings.

The Longhorns are the third-highest ranked Big 12 school. Oklahoma also moved down after winning, to No. 5. West Virginia moved up to a tie at No. 9 with South Carolina. Also from the Big 12 in the poll were Oklahoma State at No. 18, TCU at No. 20 and Kansas State at No. 21.

Texas (1-0) will look to impress voters again Saturday at home against New Mexico at 7 p.m.

Texas State, out of the Sun Belt conference, received 10 votes after its stunning upset win over Houston last weekend.
