Watching the Polls: Baylor Jumps to #5 in the Week 13 AP Poll

New, 24 comments

Baylor's win, and TCU's bye, was apparently enough to push us upward in this week's AP Poll to #5, one point ahead of #6 TCU. We remain #6 in the Coaches Poll.

Mrs. Seymour and I didn't get back to Tyler last night around 2:00 AM, so I'm just now getting around to putting together this week's Morning After post.  My apologies for the tardiness.

While you wait for that, the Coaches Poll ranking dropped a few minutes ago in a detestable slideshow format with our Bears still hanging tough at #6 in the land behind the same top 5 as a week ago.  In fact, the only real change ahead of us anywhere has FSU falling to #2 with Alabama the new #1.  I'll get you the full poll in this post as soon as it is available. Other Big 12 teams in the poll: TCU (#5), KSU (#11), and Oklahoma (#18).

More to come in a bit as we get the full rankings and see how the points shook out.  Baylor was only a handful of points behind #5 TCU a week ago, so I'm a bit surprised we didn't pass them given that we played this weekend and they didn't.
