The Texas A&M Aggies’ victory over the Arkansas Razorbacks meant a bump in their standing in the AP Top 25 poll, released on Sunday afternoon.
The Aggies beat the No. 10 Razorbacks 23-21 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington in their annual Southwest Classic game. The victory gave the Aggies (3-1, 1-0 SEC) their second straight win over a ranked team after beating then-No. 13 Miami in Week 3.
With the win, Texas A&M moved up to No. 17 from No. 23 last week.
The Aggies are at Mississippi State on Saturday. The player to watch this week is wide receiver Ainias Smith, who left the Arkansas game with an injury and his status moving forward is uncertain.
The Georgia Bulldogs remained the nation’s No. 1 team, followed by No. 2 Alabama, No. 3 Ohio State, No. 4 Michigan, No. 5 Clemson, No. 6 USC, No. 7 Kentucky, No. 8 Tennessee, No. 9 Oklahoma State and No. 10 North Carolina State in the Top 10.
Penn State was No. 11, followed by Utah, Oregon, Ole Miss, Washington, Baylor, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, BYU and Arkansas to round out the Top 20.
