Texas A&M lost to Ole Miss 23-3 on Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. With the loss being their second of the season–both conference losses– the slide continues for the Aggies as they fell to the seventh spot in this week’s Official SEC Country Power Poll.
The Aggies (5-2, 2-2 SEC) enter Week 9 trailing Georgia by two points in the latest round of voting, while accumulating 127 total points. Texas A&M was No. 2 at one point this season after starting the year with five straight wins, including two impressive victories over Arizona State and Mississippi State.
Ole Miss’s win at home impressed the voters enough to help the Rebels climb up in the rankings from sixth last week to fourth place this week with 164 points.
Texas A&M will play host to 12th-ranked South Carolina on Halloween. The Gamecocks jumped Vanderbilt in this week’s rankings after a win over the Commodores, who now hold the No. 13 ranking.
