The preseason edition of the USA TODAY Sports AFCA football coaches poll was released on Tuesday, and unsurprisingly, Texas A&M will begin the season ranked very highly, coming in at No. 6. This is the highest the Aggies have been ranked in the preseason Coaches Poll since 2013, when they also began the season ranked No. 6.
