Longhorns Rise into Top 10 of AP Poll After Win Over Gonzaga

The Texas Longhorns are on the rise in the rankings after one of the biggest wins of the Chris Beard era.

The Texas Longhorns have a new spot in the AP Poll after their big 93-74 win over the then-No. 2 Gonzaga Bulldogs on Wednesday.

The Longhorns are now the No. 4 team in the country, per the Week 2 Top 25 rankings released on Monday.

Texas joins three other Big 12 teams in the rankings, including the No. 7 Baylor Bears, the No. 3 Kansas Jayhawks, and the No. 21 Texas Tech Red Raiders.

The TCU Horned Frogs and West Virginia Mountaineers also received top-25 votes.

Texas has some upcoming ranked non-conference matchups that will give the team a chance to rise up further in the national ranks early in the season. 

The Longhorns host the No. 10 Creighton Bluejays in Austin on Thursday, Dec. 1 before traveling to New York City to battle the No. 16 Illinois Fighting Illini at Madison Square Garden for the 2022 Jimmy V. Classic on Tuesday, Dec. 6.
