Aggies open at #7 in Coaches Poll




 

As college football season draws near, more and more pre-season rankings and polls continue to be released. On Monday, perhaps the most prestigious of pre-season college football rankings were released, as USA Today released the AFCA Coaches Poll.

The coaches poll is voted on by 66 FBS head coaches from around the country, and updated weekly, starting with the first iteration released this week.

In the poll, each vote counts for a certain number of points (1st place is 25 points, 25th is 1 point), and the points are totaled to stack the teams from 1 to 25.

Four teams, Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, and Texas (WHAT?!) received first place votes in the initial poll, and the Aggies landed at #7 overall.

Let's take a look through the rest of the Top-10.
