College Football Rankings, Week 9: Aggies fall two spots in AP Poll with loss to LSU

Brett Davis-US PRESSWIRE

Facing a top ten team in conference play, the Texas A&M Aggies had a chance to make a serious statement. Instead, they lost a close one and fell two spots in this week's AP Poll.

Coming into this weekend, the Texas A&M Aggies were riding high. They had won five straight games, most recently a close one on the road against AP Poll newcomer Louisiana Tech. But their momentum was halted by the No. 6 LSU Tigers, who overcame a 12-point deficit to beat the Aggies, 24-19.

The loss drops Texas A&M to 5-2 on the year and 2-2 in the always-loaded SEC. They fell from No. 20 to No. 22 in the rankings, and will look to get their momentum back this coming weekend on the road against Auburn.

Elsewhere in the top 25, the top six spots stayed the same, with Alabama receiving all but one vote for No. 1. The No. 3 Florida Gators received the other vote, and Oregon is sandwiched between them in the poll.

Cincinnati was the only team to fall out of the poll, as they lost to 7-1 Toledo. With the win, Toledo is this week's leading vote-getter outside of the top 25.
