New rankings less on-brand, new study finds

Following the Aggies24-10 loss to Clemson on Saturday, they unsurprisingly slipped in both the Associated Press Top 25 as well as the Amway Coaches Poll. However the voters seemed to view A&M’s loss perhaps less harshly than a lot of the fanbase, dropping the Ags only four spots in each. They now are ranked 15th (Coaches) and 16th (AP) heading into their week three home game versus Lamar.
