Texas is No. 3 in the Bowl Championship Series standings, released for the first time Sunday afternoon. The Longhorns, though, are in a good spot. They sit behind No. 1 Florida and No. 2 Alabama. Should those two teams go undefeated, they would meet for the SEC championship for a spot in the national title game.
Boise State leads the non-BCS teams at No. 4, with Cincinnati at No. 5.
TCU is currently at No. 8, but they have a tough game on the road against BYU, who is No. 16 in the BCS. A win there could help the Frogs move up. Utah, which sits at No. 18, is also on TCU's schedule later in the season.
Other regional teams of interest: Oklahoma State is No. 15 and Houston No. 17.
