AUBURN, Ala.  Auburn came up a few yards short against Texas A&M on Saturday, then fell from No. 3 to No. 9 in the coaches and Associated Press polls released Sunday.

Texas A&M beat Auburn 41-38, hanging on when Auburn fumbled twice in A&M territory, including the 3-yard line, in the final 2½ minutes of the game. Auburn fell to 7-2 overall and 4-2 in the SEC. Auburn is the highest two-loss team in both polls.
The Associated Press was to release its poll Sunday afternoon. The College Football Playoff standings will be released Tuesday night.

What's next for Auburn?

"It would be the same as if we won, same as when we lost to Mississippi State," said defensive back Jonathan Jones. "Watch the film, make the corrections, and try to get better. Move forward and try to put it behind you."

Auburn players said after the game that their best option is to improve as they turned their attention to play Georgia in Athens on Saturday night.

"We have stuff we need to fix as an offense, defense and special teams," said offensive lineman Chad Slade. "We’re going to get back in the film room and get ready for Georgia."
