College Football Rankings, Week 5: Texas Longhorns Plummet To 21st

The University of Texas Longhorns had the largest drop in this week's college football rankings, falling from seventh to 21st in the latest AP Poll following Texas' 34-12 loss to unranked UCLA. 

The Longhorns committed five turnovers, four of which came in the first half. The Longhorns trailed 13-3 at the half and were then outscored 21-9 in the second half. UCLA rushed for 264 yards and dominated time of possession as a result, holding onto the ball for 32:59 during their upset win.

Mack Brown and his Longhorns will have to regroup and refocus this week as they prepare for the Red River Shootout this Saturday against the eighth-ranked Oklahoma Sooners.
