Longhorns Ranked No. 25 in Week 7 AP Poll

Texas is hanging on by a thread in the latest AP Top-25 after a gut-wrenching loss against Oklahoma on Saturday

The Texas Longhorns (4-2) will be ranked No. 25 in the country headed into this Saturday's game against the Oklahoma State Cowboys (5-0), according to the latest AP Top-25 release on Sunday. 

Texas' 55-48 loss in the Red River Showdown against the Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday was arguably one of the most thrilling games between the two rivals in recent memory (which is saying something). 

Steve Sarkisian's team jumped out to a quick 28-7 lead in the first quarter but were then outscored 48-20 the rest of the way. The final score came with three seconds remaining as Oklahoma running back Kennedy Brooks walked into the end zone from 33 yards out to complete the comeback victory.

Additionally, the Oklahoma State Cowboys will remain ranked at No. 12 in the top-25 after having an open week this weekend. Mike Gundy's team will take their undefeated record into Austin at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium this Saturday.
