With another successful weekend for Aggie Athletics behind us, it's time to take a look at the biggest storylines from Around Aggieland. On Monday's edition of TexAgs Radio, the fish bowl's own Richard Zane shared an update from A&M soccer, golf and more.

The Aggies are up to No. 5 (ahead of Florida) in this week’s AP Poll, and came in at No. 6 (behind Florida) in this week’s Coaches’ Poll.

Texas A&M travels to Knoxville this weekend for the first time in history. Tennessee owns the all-time series edge at 2-1, but the Aggies won the only matchup between the two schools as members of the SEC (2016). Kickoff is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. CT on ESPN from Neyland Stadium.

It’s matchday as No. 8 Texas A&M hosts Auburn this afternoon in the regular-season finale at Ellis Field. Kickoff is schedule for 3:00 p.m. CT and can be found for streaming on SEC Network+. This match is the make-up for the Sept. 27 date that was canceled due to COVID-19 protocols.

Bird Kuhn and the Aggies are back in action this Friday, November 13, for the first of two road matches with the Arkansas Razorbacks in Fayetteville.
