College football rankings, Week 8: Tigers join the AP party

Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

Auburn is no longer among the unranked.

After seven weeks of living on the outside looking in, Auburn made an appearance in Week 8's college football rankings. The Tigers are up to No. 24 in the Associated Press Top 25, but are still unranked in the USA Today Coaches' Poll and failed to make the cut in the first Harris Poll of the year.

Auburn's Week 8 opponent, Texas A&M is ranked No. 7 in all three polls. In case you missed it, the Aggies opened as 12-point favorites over the Tigers for their 2:30 p.m. CT tilt on Saturday.
