The Texas Tech Red Raiders may be undefeated but you won't find anyone around here buying any stock in them. The truth is, their 4-0 record built off of the likes of Texas State, New Mexico, Nevada and Kansas just aren't that impressive and even a two-loss team, that doesn't seem to be able to handle the pressure of playing a nationally ranked team on television, like A&M has built more credibility on the season than Texas Tech.

Its clear we're in agreement with the top two teams in our power rankings but number three is where a bit of disagreement comes in. I can't speak for OnlyOne but for me it was wins at Miami and at home against Baylor that put the Wildcats ahead of the Longhorns. Speaking of Baylor, it was thought that they were OnlyOne's closet team but he has them lower than both JTE and myself. I have now explanation as to why anyone would rank A&M ahead of Baylor at this point. That could all change by the end of this month but even with the loss at Kansas State this last weekend you've got to admit that Baylor has been more impressive.
Its a bit ironic that the only three teams we can find complete agreement on are first, second...and last.
