The first real test comes this Saturday

NCAA Football: New Mexico at Texas A&M Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Texas A&M entered Week 3 at No. 7 in the Associated Press Top 25, and No. 5 in the USA Today Coaches Poll, and after a 34-0 win over New Mexico, they’ll enter Week 4 at those same spots.

In the AP Poll, no teams in the top 10 lost for the first time this season, with the biggest movement coming as Clemson fell three spots (6 to 9) after a lackluster win over Georgia Tech, and Penn State rose four spots (10 to 6) after a primetime win over Auburn. The only other movement in the top 10 was Oregon jumping Oklahoma to claim the No. 3 spot in the poll.

The Coaches Poll saw no movement in the top five, with Penn State once again being the biggest mover at the top, jumping from 12 to 8. Florida fell out of the top 10 (9 to 11) after a narrow home loss to defending national champion Alabama.

The Aggies’ will face by far their biggest test of the 2021 season this coming Saturday as they take on the undefeated Arkansas Razorbacks at 2:30 p.m. at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. The Hogs are currently ranked No. 16 in the AP Top 25 and No. 18 in the Coaches Poll, having beaten Rice, Texas and Georgia Southern so far this season. This will be a pivotal game, as the winner will remain unbeaten, start 1-0 in SEC play, and add a marquee win to their resume.
