It took until late Monday night – after Clemson polished off Georgia Tech – for the first week of the 2022 College Football season to officially come to an end.

On Tuesday afternoon, the USA TODAY Sports AFCA football coaches poll released their Week 2 rankings. The Aggies saw themselves climb up one spot from their preseason No. 7 ranking, along with a few other moving pieces as Notre Dame fell to Ohio State 21-10. Georgia’s impressive outing against Oregon resulted in them jumping Ohio State, as well.

The, now, No. 6 Aggies host Appalachian State this Saturday at 2:30 PM CT at Kyle Field.
