In the latest top 25 to drop ahead of the 2020 season, the Texas football program found itself in a pretty usual spot. Sporting News released their latest top 25 rankings, post-spring since most practices across the country were cancelled due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Most ranking lists that were released by various media outlets seem to safely have the Texas Longhorns football program safely in the top 15 but not the top 10. Sporting News had the Longhorns at No. 13, which was one spot ahead of a key Big 12 competitor.
