The Texas Longhorns (3-0), TCU Horned Frogs (3-0) and Baylor Bears (3-0) are all ranked in the latest Associated Press Top 25 Poll. The idle Longhorns remain ranked No. 12, TCU's 27-7 defeat of the Virginia Cavaliers jumped the Horned Frogs from No. 17 last week to No. 15 this week, and Baylor's 47-42 defeat of host Louisiana-Monroe jumped the Bears into the poll at No. 25.

The Alabama Crimson Tide continue their stronghold on the No. 1 position in the poll, with Oregon jumping LSU to grab the No. 2 spot this week. LSU's less-than-impressive win over Auburn is the cause of the slide, though the Tigers still did garner one first place vote. Florida State and Georgia round out the Top 5 this week.
