Winners of four straight, the Texas Longhorns have caught fire at just the right time. With their 33-7 win over Iowa State on Saturday, the Longhorns are now No. 15 in the Coaches' Poll and are third in the Big 12.

Texas jumped out to a 14-0 lead over Iowa State after one quarter and never looked back, keeping the Cyclones off the scoreboard the entire second half to secure the win.

The Longhorns are now one of five Big 12 teams in the Top 25. Oklahoma State and Texas Tech entered at the bottom two spots following wins this week.

Outside of the Big 12, the rankings saw a huge change at the top. Alabama lost to Texas A&M and dropped to No. 5, leaving the No. 1 spot open for Oregon, who improved to 10-0 with a win over Cal.

The Ducks are followed by Kansas State and Notre Dame, both also 10-0, to round out the top three. Georgia came in at No. 4.
