Can you animate a path used for a text path?

I have a curved text path. Once the text animates in, is it possible to then animate the path into a straight line and have the text follow? If not, how could this be accomplished. I'm using CS6.

Sure, animate the text layer's Mask Path property.

Thanks Dave!

I was looking all over for it and with the depth of controls I just wasn't finding the right one to use.
