Texas vaults to No. 1; Bama second

On the strength of its 45-35 upset of last week's top-ranked team, the Texas Longhorns leaped to No. 1 in both the AP sportswriters poll and the USA Today coaches poll.

Alabama, which was idle Saturday, is No. 2 in both polls. The Tide was already No. 2 in the AP poll. It was No. 4 in the coaches poll last week.

Texas, which rallied to beat Oklahoma Saturday, was No. 5 in both polls last week.

Georgia, which beat Tennessee Saturday, remained No. 10 in the AP poll. The Dogs moved up one spot to No. 9 in the coaches poll.

Auburn, which lost to Arkansas, fell out of both polls.
