COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - No. 9 Texas A&M loves having a break this week.
The Aggies needed some time to rest and regroup before diving back into SEC play.
The week off seems like a luxury to this team after it played 12 straight games last year without an open week after its opener was postponed by weather to what would have been an open date.
This is the first of two open weeks for the Aggies, who are also off on Nov. 16 - a week before a trip to No. 10 LSU.
The Aggies are off to a 4-1 start with their only loss coming to top-ranked Alabama. They'll return to SEC play next week with a trip to Ole Miss.
