Congratulations to the # 1 Longhorns!
What an exciting weekend for Texas football. Even Aggie fans are happy to see the Longhorns make it to # 1:
"Texas (6-0) received 39 first-place votes and 1,599 points to leapfrog No. 2 Alabama, which was idle over the weekend.
The Crimson Tide (6-0) received the other 26 first-place votes and 1,582 points.
There was even more distance between the top two spots in the USA Today poll, which accounts for one-third of the formula used in the Bowl Championship Series rankings.
Texas received 44 first-place votes and 1,505 in voting of 61 Division I-A coaches.
Alabama received 14 first-place votes and 1,452 points while No. 3 Penn State had three first-place votes and 1,416 points."
Texas plays # 11 Missouri next week. We hope that they win every game except the annual match against Texas A&M on the Friday after Thanksgiving.
Congratulations to Coach Brown and everyone associated with UT football.
It's great to be # 1!
