The first BCS poll of the season was released today with Alabama ranked No. 1 as expected. The Texas A&M Football team checked in at No. 18, which is a slight surprise considering they are ranked No. 19 and No. 20 in the USA Today and AP polls.
The Aggies are coming off a 59-57 shootout victory over previously undefeated Louisiana Tech in Shreveport. It was the Aggies' fifth consecutive win of the season after they lost their season opener 20-17 to Florida.
The ranking of No. 18 is the highest rank that the Aggies have achieved in any poll this season. The Ags will face No. 6 LSU on Saturday in College Station.
This is a breakdown of Texas A&M's BCS ranking.
