Texas A&M is also ranked number 22 in the Amway Coaches Poll, released earlier today. The Aggies were ranked 22nd in the AP poll three weeks ago as well, before suffering a 45-23 loss to Alabama (still by far the closest game Bama has played this season, believe it or not).

The Aggies travel to Columbia, South Carolina this weekend to take on their bitter historic rival, the South Carolina Gamecocks.
