Texas A&M Moving Up in the Polls: #7 in AP and USA Today Coaches

New, comments

The Aggies jumped Stanford and Georgia in both polls.

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

After an emotional 41-38 road win against Ole Miss, the Aggies see their biggest movement in the rankings since losing to Alabama. Texas A&M moved up two spots in the AP Poll, taking advantage of Stanford and Georgia losses and an uninspiring performance from Louisville.

Other notes of interest: LSU jumped the Aggies after defeating Florida. Baylor continues to work toward the top 10 after beating KSU. Texas did not make the top 25 as a 2-loss team despite beating Oklahoma. The Sooners only fell to 18th. Let's all laugh.
