Aggies maintain ranking despite COVID bye

Overall an uneventful Saturday

NCAA Football: Texas A&M at South Carolina Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

Texas A&M may have had its game against Tennessee it’s game postponed until Saturday, Dec. 12, but that didn’t seem to affect the Aggies’ rankings, as they stayed at No. 5 in the AP Top 25 and No. 6 in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

In a weekend that featured more cancellations than upsets, most of the top 25 remained relatively unchanged. In fact, SMU (falling to Tulsa) and Army (losing to Tulane) were the only schools ranked in either poll to lose over the weekend.

A&M fans will likely have to hope this trend of not punishing idle teams continues next week, as it is exceedingly likely that the Aggies’ Saturday, Nov. 21, tilt against Ole Miss also gets postponed, as A&M will still have many players in their 14-day quarantine following a COVID-19 exposure. Assuming no new positive tests arise, the next time we see Jimbo Fisher’s team take the field will likely be Saturday, Nov. 28 against defending national champion (even if they don’t look it) LSU.
