Following the rankings being released, Longhorns fans took to Reddit to take aim at the Longhorns being ranked third.

“Looks like AP voters don’t get Longhorn Network.”

“All top 4 teams lucked out that everyone else looked like s**t.”

“I saw this and was like wait, people saw that game and thought Texas should be ranked higher. Ok.”

“Who are the voters that put texas at #1? I drink burnt orange Kool aid but those voters should no longer be able to vote.”

As some fans point out, most of the top teams struggled in Week 3 which made these rankings tough. But, Texas does have the best win out of anyone by beating Alabama on the road which should put them in the top-two.

However, the Longhorns being three is still fair, as Georgia is the reigning back-to-back National Champions and Michigan is off to a 3-0 start.

Texas beats Wyoming at home

A week after beating Alabama on the road by 10 points, the Longhorns started slow against Wyoming and trailed 7-3 after the first quarter.

The score was tied at 10 going into the fourth quarter, but Texas outscored the Cowboys 21-0 in the fourth quarter to get a 31-10 win.

Texas will go on the road to play Baylor but it’s next big game is on Oct. 7 as the Longhorns host Oklahoma. Other big games on the schedule for Texas are BYU, Kansas State, TCU, and Texas Tech.
