Despite not much recent success, the Longhorns sneak into the top 25 based on the hope that new coach Tom Herman brings to the program.

The Big 12 has 5 teams ranked in the top 25, trailing only the 6 that the SEC has in the poll. The ACC will also have 5 teams in the top 25 to start the season, followed by the Pac-12 and Big Ten who both have 4.
