Brown puzzled by computer rankings

Updated:
HOUSTON (AP) Texas coach Mack Brown is puzzled by the Bowl Championship Series computer rankings.

The Longhorns (9-1, 6-0 Big 12) are ranked fourth in this week's Associated Press Top 25, third in the coaches poll -- but 5th in the BCS.

UT's only loss came to top-ranked Ohio State.

The Longhorns have beaten Oklahoma, Nebraska and Texas Tech, all ranked teams at some point this season.

But the Longhorns also played North Texas, Rice and Division 1AA Sam Houston State, games that hurt the schedule strength component of their computer ranking.

Brown says all Texas can do now is win out and hope the teams ahead of his team falter.

Brown wants more consistent parameters about how teams should schedule without getting hurt in the BCS rankings.

The AP poll is no longer part of the BCS formula.

Brown wishes it was.

Texas can clinch a share of the South Division title and a berth in the league championship game with a victory Saturday night at Kansas State (6-4, 3-3).
