Texas A&M Moves Up; Houston Drops Out Of Top 10 In AP Poll

Week 6 of the college football season was one that saw a lot develop that will have a profound effect on the College Football Playoff.  One Texas school threw itself into the possible mix as a playoff team while another saw its perfect season and a chance at a National Championship taken away.

The Texas A&M Aggies (6-0) were able to hold off Tennessee (5-1) in a big SEC matchup at Kyle Field, winning 45-38 in Double OT to jump two spots from No. 8 to No. 6 in the AP Poll.  A&M took over the number six spot from the University of Houston which suffered their first defeat of the season losing to Navy 46-40 and dropping to No. 13 in the Poll.  Navy (4-1) saw their win jump them all the way into the 25, occupying the last spot for the first time this season.  Tennessee’s loss didn’t affect them at all, staying at No. 9 after their tight loss.

One other Texas school moved up in the rankings, Baylor crept in on the top-10, landing at No. 11, up two spots from No. 13.  The Bears didn’t play on Saturday, but sit atop the Big 12 at 5-0 on the season.
