FBC--T25-TALK OF TEXAS
DALLAS — Tom Herman paused when considering the question many are starting to ask. So is Texas really back? With a five-game winning streak after beating Oklahoma, that becomes a legitimate question for the Longhorns. By Stephen Hawkins. UPCOMING. 700 words, photos by 4 p.m.
T25-COLLEGE FOOTBALL POLL
Notre Dame moved into the top five, Texas and UCF reached the top 10 and the Southeastern Conference placed a season-high eight teams in the latest Associated Press college football poll. After three teams in the top eight and eight ranked teams overall lost on Saturday, there was significant movement throughout the AP Top 25, except in the first four spots. By Ralph D. Russo.

T25-AP TOP 25 TAKEAWAYS
Texas has been losing the type of game it won on Saturday for nearly a decade.

By Ralph D. Russo. SENT: 1,000 words, photos.
HOUSTON — J.J. Watt and the Houston Texans look for their first win over in-state rival Dallas since their inaugural game in 2002 in a rare meeting with the Cowboys. NFL leading rusher Ezekiel Elliott leads a Dallas team looking for its third win. By Kristie Rieken. 750 words. Photos.
CLEVELAND — The Indians know a 2-0 deficit isn’t insurmountable after they blew one last October. But unless they start to hit Houston’s pitchers in Game 3 of the AL Division Series, Cleveland’s season will come another quick conclusion. By Tom Withers. SENT: 750 words, photos. Will be updated following workouts.
