Texas A&M slides in at No. 21 in Associated Press Preseason Poll

NCAA Football: Southern Methodist at Texas A&M

Even without Johnny Manziel and his electric wideout Mike Evans, the program that Kevin Sumlin has built at Texas A&M has garnered nationwide respect from poll voters.

The new-look Aggies led by a star-studded freshman class and recently named starting quarterback Kenny Hill come in at No. 21 in the Associated Press Preseason Top 25.

Eight teams from the SEC are ranked in this year’s preseason poll.

  • this will change after the South Carolina game, i just home neither team drops much

    • Does not matter how much they drop. 1) in the national championship series, somebody with a loss is going to be in the playoffs, 2) neither of these teams is likely to play for the NC (just the odds), and a one loss team can still play for the East or the West (although a loss to USC probably eliminates A&M in the West, its just too strong this year), 3) and rankings don’t really matter until game 10 or so for bowl selection options (and there are so many bowls, almost everybody has a shot at something.
