The Texas A&M Aggies rose four spots to No. 10 in this week's USA Today Coaches' Poll after their 29-24 win over the previously top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday. Alabama slid to No. 5 in the rankings, with the Oregon Ducks taking over the top spot.
The Aggies debuted in the top 25 on Oct. 7, and have remained there ever since, even with a loss to the LSU Tigers on Oct. 20. A&M's current ranking is its highest of the season.
LSU moved up a spot to No. 8 after its 37-17 win over the Mississippi State Bulldogs, who fell out of the rankings and dropped to 7-3 on the season. The Texas Longhorns' 33-7 victory over the Iowa State Cyclones earned them a two-spot bump. They climbed to No. 15.
The undefeated Kansas State Wildcats and Notre Dame Fighting Irish each moved up a spot, to Nos. 2 and 3, respectively. The Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama round out the new top five.
