AP Top 25 poll: Texas A&M jumps in, North Carolina falls out of top 10 in college football rankings

Texas A&M’s climb in the Associated Press Top 25 continues as the Aggies have entered the top 10 in the latest rankings. After a comfortable 28-14 win over Mississippi State on Saturday, Texas A&M came in at No. 7 in the AP poll. A&M was previously ranked as low as No. 18 following a blowout loss to Alabama, but two straight wins over the Florida and Mississippi State have made Jimbo Fisher’s team one of the hottest in college football. In all, the SEC has four teams in the top 10. 

Conversely, North Carolina’s time as a top-five team was short-lived. The Tar Heels fell nine spots to No. 14 after their 31-28 loss at Florida State on Saturday. North Carolina had risen quickly up the AP rankings since its season began, ascending from No. 12 to start the year to No. 5 within a matter of weeks. However, after its failed comeback against the Seminoles, Mack Brown’s team took a tumble out of the top 10. 

Elsewhere, Auburn, Tennessee and Louisiana fell out of the AP poll, just as they did in the Coaches Poll, following Week 7 losses. Marshall, NC State and Coastal Carolina entered the top 25 after big Week 7 wins.
