Despite bye, Aggies rise in both polls

Absence makes the voters grow fonder

NCAA Football: Texas A&M at South Carolina Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas A&M Aggies had the week off, but that didn’t stop them from rising in both the Associated Press Top 25 as well as the Amway Coaches Poll. The Aggies are up 16th (up from 17th) in the AP Poll and 17th (up from 18th) in the Coaches Poll.

The Aggies travel to Starkville, MS, to take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Saturday, Oct. 27. The Bulldogs are now out of the polls following their 19-3 loss to LSU. They were previously ranked 22nd in the AP Poll.

Other notables:

  • Following Ohio State’s 49-20 loss to Purdue, Alabama and Clemson - the Aggies’ two lone losses on the year - are once again ranked #1 and #2 in the country.
  • Kentucky, who lost to Texas A&M two weeks ago, remains four spots ahead of the Aggies in the AP Poll and three spots ahead in the Coaches Poll.
  • Texas remains the only team ranked in either poll who lost to Maryland.
