2018 Texas Longhorns finish ranked 9th in the AP Poll

NCAA Football: Sugar Bowl-Georgia vs Texas Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

The Georgia win was probably worth a 12 team ranking bump. The Longhorns finish ranked in the Top 10 for the first time since 2009.

Tom Herman also has a favorable trajectory to sell, moving the squad from a 7-6 inaugural season to 10-4 in Year 2. Texas will have to reload on defense and on the OL in 2019, but there’s a lot to like about the program’s immediate and intermediate future.
