Despite win over juggernaut Texas State

The Texas A&M Aggies secured a 41-7 win over the Texas State Bobcats last Thursday, a win that felt all the more impressive after a slew of close games or outright losses by Power 5 schools to Group of 5 opponents over the weekend. But with little action at the top of the polls (the only movement was Florida going from 8 to 10 after beating Miami), A&M remained outside of the top 10 in both the Amway Coaches Poll as well as the Associated Press Top 25 when they released their updated rankings on Tuesday.

Week 1 may have been uneventful at the top, but that’s soon to change, with ranked-on-ranked matchups that feature a few teams you may be familiar with. Your Aggies travel to Death Valley to take on Clemson at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, while LSU travels to Austin to take on a team whom I no longer care about and whose name escapes me at the moment at 6:30 p.m. Both games will air on ABC.
