NCAA Football Rankings, Week 9: Texax A&M falls, Texas Tech rises, Texas back in Coaches Poll

Brett Davis-US PRESSWIRE

The Aggies fell, the Red Raiders rose, and the Longhorns made another appearance in the new edition of the USA Today Coaches Poll.

The Week 9 edition of the USA Today Coaches Poll is out, and there wasn't a lot of change at the top. Florida jumped Kansas State based on the power of their blowout win over South Carolina, but other than that there wasn't much movement.

The Texas A&M Aggies fell from 19th to 21st after losing a close game to sixth-ranked LSU. The Texas Tech Red Raiders jumped from 17th from 20th after a crazy 56-53 3OT win over the then-21st-ranked TCU Horned Frogs. TCU dropped out of the Top 25 with that loss. And the Texas Longhorns have made another appearance in the Top 25 after a 56-50 win over the Baylor Bears.
