The Texas Longhorns are in college football's top ten for the first time since 2010.

After Saturday's 48-45 win over Oklahoma, UT jumped ten spots to No. 9 in this week's Associated Press Top 25.  OU dropped four spots to No. 11 in the latest poll.

The Longhorns will put their lofty ranking on the line Saturday against Baylor in Austin.

Along with Oklahoma, LSU and Auburn dropped out of the AP top ten.  LSU fell to No. 13 after losing to Florida, while Auburn tumbled to No. 21 after a 23-9 loss to Mississippi State. Texas A&M is at No. 22 after beating Kentucky in overtime on Saturday.

The AP top five has Alabama at No. 1, followed by Georgia, Ohio State, Clemson and Notre Dame.​
