Texas A&M reminded it’s fans what a comfortable SEC win looked like, winning a game against at Power 5 opponent by more than three points for the first time this season en route to a 35-14 win over the Missouri Tigers.
Their dominance, combined with a another week with several ranked teams suffering surprising losses, saw the Aggies move up in both the Associated Press Top 25 as well as the USA Today Coaches Poll. A&M moves from No. 21 to No. 17 in the AP, and from No. 18 to No. 17 in the Coaches Poll.
The Ags return to Kyle Field next week to host bitter longtime rival South Carolina before they have an Oct. 30 bye week to round out the month of October. The Gamecocks are 4-3 on the season, with their only win over a Power 5 opponent coming Saturday in a one-point victory over Vanderbilt. Texas A&M has never lost to South Carolina and should enter this game as a heavy favorite.
