Wins vs top 5 teams in football
#5 Tulane 1939*
#5 Texas 1975
#2 Nebraska 1998
#2 Kansas St 1998
#5 Texas 1999
#1 Oklahoma 2002
#1 Alabama 2012
#4 Auburn 2014
#4 Florida 2020
#1 Alabama 2021

Am I missing any? There's a lot against #6-#11 which may confuse some

It sure would be nice to get to where beating highly ranked teams was at least thought of as a 50/50 going in didnt surprise.

We beat one last year and this year. So it appears to be trending in the right direction

Alabama was ranked 1 when we beat them 3 weeks ago.

Florida was ranked 4 last season.

I wonder what that list would look like if you only did end of season rankings. I know 2012 would stand since Alabama still finished #1.

The other, I don't know.

Bowl games didn’t count towards your record back then.

BlowU could’ve been in there again as the #3 team in 2010 when we beat them, but had lost to mizzou a couple weeks earlier so there were #9 when we beat them. They finished #6 for the year with a fiesta bowl win.

Yeah end of year rankings would be interesting, I’m pretty sure auburn didn’t end up very high in that 2014 season when we upset them at #4. But even that metric wouldnt be perfect as if you beat someone towards the end of the year, it probably knocks them out of the top 5 even if they were a really good team for most of the season, just by a factor of not having enough time to climb back up in the rankings.

What was KSU ranked when we beat them in 2000? I know they were top-5 early in the year but may ave already lost by that point.
