No. 9 Texas A&M, No. 23 Texas in SB Nation's BlogPoll

SB Nation's weekly poll of it's college football sites was released today and Texas A&M dropped a spot to No. 9 after the Aggies lost to...well, they didn't lose to anyone, except maybe Baylor's lawyers. Still, the Aggies should continue to be a Top 10 team for the near future, as they play Idaho this week in what should be an easy victory.

The University of Houston just missed making this Top 25 and clocks in just behind TCU at No. 27. As mentioned in the headline, Texas moved up two spots to No. 23 after holding on for a tight 17-16 victory over a frisky BYU team. It helps that the Longhorns seem to have found some more stability at the quarterback spot. At least, they know they won't be starting Garrett Gilbert any time soon in favor of either Case McCoy or David Ash. So that helps.

Here's the complete pollwith a breakdown of the biggest movers and shakers this week, including the Oklahoma Sooners, who lost their top spot to Alabama, falling all the way to No. 3 behind LSU.

In the Associated Press Top 25 poll, Oklahoma stayed in first for the 100th time in school history. That's a pretty impressive feat. Texas A&M is also No. 9 in the AP poll while Texas drops a spot to No. 24. Houston also dropped a spot to No. 28, but is pretty far off making that Top 25, judging by the voting totals. The Cougars had half as many votes as No. 27 USC and a third of the votes of No. 26 Michigan.
