LSU’s win over Syracuse wasn’t the most aesthetically pleasing football game.
Although the Tigers earned a 35-26 victory, far more questions than answers remain for the team at this point. Still, LSU (3-1, 0-1) moved up one spot in this week’s SEC Country Power Poll.
LSU inched up to No. 6 in the poll from last week, benefiting mostly from Vanderbilt falling hard after a 59-0 waxing at the hands of Alabama. The Crimson Tide remain a unanimous No. 1, as they have been all season.
Though the poll places LSU at sixth in the conference, it remains far too early to tell where the Tigers actually stack up. For pessimists, the glass seems more than half empty. LSU’s lone SEC game was a 37-7 loss to Mississippi State, which was subsequently routed 31-3 by Georgia.
LSU has one last nonconference game against Troy on Saturday. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. ET (6 p.m. CT) at Tiger Stadium. The game will be televised on ESPNU. Troy (3-1) is coming off a 22-17 win over Akron.
The Tigers play at Florida in two weeks. The Gators are rated No. 4 in the SEC Country Power Poll after improbable last-minute wins over Tennessee and Kentucky.
