The Bowl Championship Series released its first rankings of the 2013 college football season Sunday evening, tabbing Texas A&M as the No. 16 squad in the country.
Texas A&M is joined by five other Southeastern Conference programs in the rankings — Alabama (1), Missouri (5), Auburn (11), LSU (13) and South Carolina (21).
The Aggies’ remaining schedule includes two teams ranked in the BCS, both of which will come on the road and will close the season — at No. 13 LSU on Nov. 23 and No. 5 Missouri on Nov. 30.
The BCS rankings are divided into three contributing categories: the Harris Poll, the Coaches’ Poll and the average of the computer scores. A&M finished No. 13 in the Harris Poll, No. 15 in the Coaches’ Poll and averaged No. 18 in the computer rankings.
