LSU held the top spot in the Week 7 Official SEC Country Power Poll for the second consecutive week. The 5-0 Tigers received 14 out of 17 possible first-place votes from our analysts and finished 27 points ahead of the second-ranked Florida.
LSU started sluggishly on Saturday, but ultimately played its best game of the season in a 45-24 victory over South Carolina. The Tigers showed great balance offensively and made enough plays defensively to pull away in the second half.
No. 1 and No. 2 in the Power Poll will go head-to-head this weekend. The 6-0 Gators head to Death Valley for a primetime contest with the Tigers on Saturday.
Fellow SEC West foes Texas A&M, Alabama and Ole Miss rounded out the top five. The Tigers still have the Aggies, Crimson Tide and Rebels left on their schedule.
