Texas A&M climbed four spots to seventh in the Associated Press Top 25 college football poll on Sunday.

The Aggies (3-1), coming off a 28-14 victory at Mississippi State, are ranked ninth in the USA Today coaches’ poll.

It is the highest A&M has been ranked since it was seventh in Week 10 of 2016 by both AP and the coaches. The Aggies were ranked fourth that week in the initial College Football Playoff poll. The Aggies lost that week at Mississippi State, falling to 10th by AP and eighth by the CFP.

A&M will be off this week, playing host to Arkansas on Oct. 31.
