NCAA Football: Texas A&M at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

After an underwhelming 10-7 victory over the Colorado Buffaloes, Texas A&M saw only sight movement in the polls on Sunday. The Aggies held steady in the USA Today Coaches Poll, staying at No. 5, while falling two spots in the AP Top 25 to No. 7.

Ohio State’s loss dropped them out of the top 5, but they were replaced by the team who beat them, Oregon, in both polls. In the AP poll, Iowa also rose above the Aggies after defeating Iowa State, as did Clemson (somewhat surprisingly) after a 49-3 win over FCS opponent South Carolina State (their lone win of the young season).

The Aggies will look to remedy some of their offensive woes in week 3 as they host the New Mexico Lobos at Kyle Field.

Oh also the Texas Longhorns fell out of both polls completely following a 40-21 drubbing at the hands of Arkansas, their most lopsided loss since the Charlie Strong era.
