If the season ended today, LSU would be in Kirk Herbstreit’s College Football Playoff. The ESPN analyst ranked the Tigers as the third-best team in the nation after they defeated South Carolina 45-24 on Saturday.
LSU’s hypothetical matchup in the semi-final would be against the defending champs, Ohio State. The Tigers were the only SEC team ranked inside Herbstreit’s top six. The Tigers will have a great chance to move further up the list if they can knock off Florida next weekend in Death Valley.
