Vols remain No. 9 in AP Top 25, fall to No. 11 in Amway poll

WBIR 10Sports anchor Patrick Murray takes a look at the top three plays you might not have noticed from the Vols double overtime loss to Texas A&M.

The Tennessee Volunteers football team remained ranked No. 9 in the AP Top 25 poll released Monday afternoon.

The Vols fell two spots from No. 9 to No. 11 in the Amway Coaches Poll, which was also released Monday afternoon.

The impact of Hurricane Matthew on the weekend's college football scheduled delayed the release of both polls, which typically come out on Sunday.

Tennessee (5-1, 2-1 SEC) lost on the road to Texas A&M 45-38 in double overtime on Saturday. The Aggies moved from No. 8 to No. 6 in AP poll. Texas A&M moved from No. 7 to No. 6 in the Amway poll.

The Vols have won seven consecutive games at Neyland Stadium despite the 45-38 road loss to Texas A&M.

Tennessee play No. 1 ranked Alabama (6-0, 3-0 SEC) on Saturday afternoon at Neyland Stadium.

Alabama has the longest active win streak in FBS with 18 consecutive victories. The Crimson Tide forced five turnovers in a 49-30 victory over Arkansas on Saturday.

Tennessee hasn’t beaten Alabama since Oct. 21, 2006, when head coach Mike Shula was in the last season of his four-year tenure at Alabama.

Alabama leads the all-time series against Tennessee 53-38-7. The Crimson Tide beat the Vols 19-14 last season.

Saturday’s game between Tennessee and Alabama kicks off at 3:30 p.m. ET. CBS will broadcast the game.
