Following their most lopsided shutout victory since 1993, Texas A&M was rewarded by moving up several spots in both college football polls. The Aggies moved up from 24th to 20th in the Amway Coaches Poll, and from 20th to 17th in the Associated Press Poll.

The Aggies are one of eight SEC teams ranked in both polls, along with Alabama (1, 1), Georgia (13, 16), Tennessee (15, 15), Ole Miss (17, 19), LSU (22, 20), Florida (23, 23) and Arkansas (24, 24).

Texas A&M opens SEC play at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 17, as they travel to take on Auburn at Jordan Hare Stadium. The Tigers are 1-1 following a season-opening loss to Clemson and a week two win over Arkansas State. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.
