Texas keeps lid on excitement of No. 1

AUSTIN (AP) - The Texas Longhorns today gave a collective ho-hum to their new role as No. 1.

Linebacker Sergio Kindle says you can't get all "big-headed."

Texas earned its first regular-season No. 1 ranking since 1984 with a 45-35 win Saturday over Oklahoma.

But the Longhorns (6-0, 2-0 Big 12) say the more important numbers are 11, 8, 7 and 16 -- the rankings of four of their next five opponents in a murderous schedule.

Quarterback Colt McCoy says the Longhorns have got to continue "to go play."

UT plays at home Saturday against No. 11 Missouri (5-1, 1-1), which was No. 3 until losing at home to No. 8 Oklahoma State. The Cowboys are next on the Longhorns schedule.

Road trips to No. 7 Texas Tech and No. 16 Kansas round out the tough stretch.
