There are mixed feelings on the placement of Texas schools in the national rankings. There are individuals and studies that have conflicting data and research that say that Texas is in the middle or on the bottom of the national rankings. However, it is clear that Texas is not in the top half of the national ranking.
According to a report from the "World News", the only two Universities from Texas that were listed in their top 20 schools was Texas A&M University and Texas Tech University.
