Texas might be back.
At the very least, Tom Herman’s team continues to climb the rankings. The Longhorns moved up to the No. 6 spot Sunday in the latest Associated Press poll.
Texas currently occupies first place in the Big 12 (4-0) and would secure a bid in the conference title game by winning out.
But where does this team stand in the hunt for one of the four College Football Playoff spots?
According to Fivethirtyeight.com’s latest CFB Playoff projection, the Longhorns currently have a 15 percent chance of make of being one of the four teams selected.
Eight teams have better CFB playoff odds, including three ranked below Texas. That list includes No. 8 Oklahoma ( 30 percent), No. 7 Georgia (21 percent) and No. 11 Ohio State (22 percent.)
