AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Texas Longhorns moved up one spot in the Associated Press Top 25 rankings to No. 3 after a 31-10 win over Wyoming, achieving their highest ranking since the 2009 season when they played for the national title.

Texas received three first-place votes and edged previously No. 3 Florida State by two poll points to swap spots with them. Georgia and Michigan remained Nos. 1 and 2. Southern California rounded out the top five.

Ohio State, Penn State, Washington, Notre Dame and Oregon complete the top 10 with the Alabama Crimson Tide’s streak of top 10 appearances ending at 128 polls as they fell to No. 13. It was the second-longest streak in the history of the AP poll.

The Pac-12 again has eight teams in the rankings, the most of any conference, followed by the Southeastern Conference with six. Tennessee took a huge hit after losing to previously unranked Florida 29-16, tumbling 12 spots to No. 23. The Gators moved into the rankings at No. 25 with the victory.
