LSU advanced one spot in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll. The Tigers moved from seventh to sixth after defeating South Carolina 45-24 on Saturday. LSU remained the highest-ranked team in the SEC.
The Tigers put up an impressive performance on Saturday, but none of the teams ranked ahead of LSU lost. LSU did bypass Michigan State, who struggled to defeat Rutgers this weekend.
The Tigers will face their biggest test of the season on Saturday when undefeated and No. 8 Florida Gators head to Death Valley. A win against a surging Florida team could land LSU in the top five. LSU has not beaten a very good team, yet. Auburn was expected to challenge for the SEC championship but has struggled mightily and no longer represent a quality win.
