AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn's 45-41 victory over Texas A&M did wonders for its ranking in the Associated Press poll.
The Tigers vaulted 13 positions — from No. 24 to No. 11 — in the AP's latest poll, which was released Sunday. Texas A&M, the team Auburn beat 45-41 on Saturday, fell from No. 7 to No. 14.
Auburn also earned a spot in the USA Today coaches poll for the first time this season, entering the rankings at No. 17. In a bit of a surprise, the Aggies came in two spots ahead of the Tigers at No. 15.
There are four other SEC teams aside from the Tigers and Aggies in the AP's top 25: Alabama at No. 1, Missouri at No. 5, LSU at No. 13 and South Carolina at No. 20.

Auburn returns home this weekend for a matchup against Florida Atlantic. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET and will be televised by FSN.
