The Aggies lost their first game of the season on the road to #1 Alabama, but they are still among the nation’s best.

It’s hard to argue with a drop in the polls after a 19-point loss, and the Aggies did not fall far after dropping a game in Tuscaloosa. Pollsters likely recognized the dominance of Alabama among the entire college football landscape and cut A&M some slack. The Aggies have a big opportunity to move back into the top 5 before season’s end.
