NCAA Football Rankings 2012: Texas teetering on the brink in BlogPoll

The Longhorns slip seven spots after their disappointing 20-13 loss to their nearby foes, the TCU Horned Frogs.

Brendan Maloney-US PRESSWIRE

The Texas Longhorns slide down seven spots to the 25th ranking in this week's SB Nation BlogPoll, but their next game could provide a big chance at redemption.

The Longhorns (8-3, 5-3) fell 20-13 to the TCU Horned Frogs (7-4, 4-4) in an upset loss at Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin this past week. Texas has a prime opportunity to get back in the good graces of the voting public when they take on the No. 7 Kansas State Wildcats this week in Manhattan, Kansas. A huge upset win on the road would likely catapult Mack Brown's squad up the list.

TCU didn't factor into this week's BlogPoll; neither did the Baylor Bears and SMU Mustangs.
