Jesse Kurtz's Top 25 Poll - Sunday, October 19th

The 'Horns hook the #1 spot in the land after turning Mizzou into Mizz-Who?

The eyes of Texas are looking down at everybody in college football in my mind.  There are the Longhorns, then everybody else.  After dismantling Missouri, and holding Chase Daniel and company scoreless at halftime, the Longhorns have proven they are THE team to beat in college football.  The road does not get any easier for the 'Horns as they host #8 Oklahoma State next weekend.

Alabama drops to #2.  The Tide nearly beat Ole Miss, but I am on record as saying any win in the SEC is a good win no matter how close.  With that said, I had to drop them a spot.  Not because of what they did, more because of what Texas did.  The Horns are that good!

The Mountain West took a shot to the face this week.  BYU's loss to TCU drops the Cougars out of the Top Ten.  However, TCU is back in my Top 20 at #18 after the impressive beat-down in Fort Worth.  Utah is now in the drivers seat to be a BCS buster for the second time in four years.

Got thoughts?  Criticism or comments?  Leave the on the upper right-hand side of the page.

Until next week, keep livin' the dream...  Jesse Kurtz, KKTV Sports Anchor
