College Football Rankings Week 10: Texas Just Makes The Coaches Poll At No. 25

After making their debut on The Longhorn Network with a 43-0 demolition of the Kansas Jayhawks, the Texas Longhorns have crept their way back into the latest coaches poll sitting at No. 25 this week.

The team they face next Saturday, the Texas Tech Red Raiders, will be without their ranking. The Red Raiders were previously ranked at No. 22 in last week's poll, but a crushing 41-7 defeat on behalf of the Iowa State Cyclones have them outside the polls.

Also, if this was the Top 26 Coaches Poll, the TCU Horned Frogs would be No. 26.

Here is the full breakout of the USA Today's Top 25 Coaches Poll:
