Auburn's bye week did more than provide the Tigers time to heal up some injuries and do self-evaluations. It also helped the team move up in the latest AP and Coaches polls.

Auburn was ranked 16th in the AP poll released Sunday afternoon, up three spots from 19th in last week's poll. The Tigers jumped ahead of NC State, Michigan State and Washington State, all of which lost on Saturday. Auburn is the second-highest ranked two-loss team in the AP poll, behind No. 14 Iowa State, which picked up its second win of the season against a top-five team when it upset TCU.

Auburn was ranked 15th in Sunday's Coaches Poll, up four spots from 19th in last week's rankings. The Tigers benefited from the loss of six teams ranked higher than them, including four of the five teams directly ahead of them in last week's poll: No. 14. USF (lost to Houston), No. 15 NC State (lost to Notre Dame), No. 16 Washington State (lost to Arizona) and No. 18 Michigan State (lost to Northwestern).

The first College Football Playoff rankings will debut on Tuesday night.

Auburn (6-2, 4-1 SEC) travels to Texas A&M (5-3, 3-2) on Saturday (11 a.m., ESPN). The Aggies lost to Mississippi State, 35-14, over the weekend.

AL.com will update this post.
