TCU thumped Arkansas 28-7 on Saturday, and in response, they’ve moved up in both the AP and Coaches Polls. TCU moved from 23 to 20 in the AP Poll, jumping Florida, South Florida, and Washington State.
Meanwhile, TCU also comes in at No. 20 in the Coaches Poll, where they make an appearance for the first time this season. They sit right between No. 19 Stanford and No. 21 South Florida.
TCU is the only school from Texas in either poll, but Houston is receiving votes in both polls, while Texas Tech is receiving votes in the AP Poll. Texas fans will be bummed to learn that their 56-0 win over San Jose State didn’t garner them any votes (But I’m sure Maryland’s dismantling of Towson made them feel better about their week 1 loss).
Oklahoma is carrying the banner for the Big 12 in this week’s rankings, jumping to No. 2 in the AP, and No. 3 in the Coaches, after a 31-16 defeat of Ohio State in the Horseshoe on Saturday night. It’s going to be hard for them to crack the No. 1 spot until Alabama shows that they have a weakness, or Baker Mayfield learns the difference between real grass and field turf.
Oklahoma State also checks in in the top 10 of both polls, while Kansas State checks in at No. 18 in both polls.
The Frogs will look to improve on their ranking this Saturday, when they host 2-0 SMU.
