TCU maintained their spot in the Top 25 Monday, remaining at #16 after a 1-1 week in Big 12 play. The Frogs, who sit at 13-2 overall and 1-2 in league contests, are in the rankings for a seventh consecutive week.

The Big 12 is all over the AP, with 14-1 WVU rising to the number two spot, and receiving first place votes, after knocking off one of the hottest teams - and best players - in the country in OU in Morgantown Saturday. Texas Tech made the biggest climb, skyrocketing ten spots to #8 on the strength of two wins, including one in dominant fashion at Kansas. The Jayhawks, for their part, fell to spots to #12, while Oklahoma dropped to ninth. Baylor jumped back in the mix in the receiving votes category, and is on the precipice of the Top 25 after a 1-1 week that included a loss to TCU and a victory over UT, both in Waco.

The Big 12 has five ranked teams in this week’s poll, while the ACC leads all conferences with six. The Big 10 and SEC, two conferences getting a lot of love lately, have two and three ranked teams respectively.

The Frogs hit the road Wednesday for a matchup with the Texas Longhorns at 8:00pm.
