Texas A&M's Demond Demas (1) makes a catch over South Carolina's Marcellas Dial (24) at Kyle Field on Saturday.

Texas A&M is ranked 14th in both major college football polls, moving up three spots after its 44-14 victory over South Carolina.

The Aggies (6-2, 3-2 SEC) are the highest ranked two-loss team. Georgia and Cincinnati remained atop the polls, but Alabama (7-1) moved to third in both polls, leapfrogging Oklahoma (8-0), which struggled to beat Kansas.

Ole Miss (6-1) is ranked ninth by the USA Today Coaches Poll and 10th by the Associated Press, giving the Southeastern Conference three teams in the Top 10. The Big Ten has four teams in AP’s Top 10 – No. 5 Ohio State, No. 6 Michigan, No. 8 Michigan State and No. 9 Iowa.

Other SEC teams ranked are No. 12 Kentucky and No. 18 Auburn. A&M, which is open Saturday, will play Auburn in two weeks at Kyle Field before going to Ole Miss on Nov. 13. Ole Miss will be at Auburn this week.
