College Football: Week 6 Power Rankings

25. Texas Longhorns (4-2)

Week 6 Result: Lost to Oklahoma 55-48

Ouch. In one of two incredible games this past Saturday, Texas fell to archrival Oklahoma in devastating fashion. At the end of the opening quarter, the Longhorns led Oklahoma 28-7. On the first offensive play of the game, Texas QB Casey Thompson threw a 75-yard TD pass — the first of three TD passes Thompson threw in the 1st quarter. At halftime, Texas led 38-20. Unfortunately, the second half was a completely different game. Texas’ offense scored just 10 points after the break — with its lone TD tying the game with 1:23 remaining. While the offense did enough to win the game (in the first half), the defense fell apart and surrendered 35 points in the second half.
