LSU fell to sixth in the Week 13 version of the SEC Country Power Poll. Three weeks ago, the Tigers were atop the rankings.
A three-game losing streak can be blamed for LSU’s diminished ranking. The Tigers have lost by double digits to Alabama, Arkansas and Ole Miss and haven’t been competitive for much of those contests.
LSU earned 121 points in the latest SEC Country Power Poll, tied with Tennessee and Texas A&M. The highest vote LSU received from our experts was fourth place, while at least one had the Tigers as low as ninth.
The Tigers will attempt to salvage a respectable campaign in the regular-season finale against Texas A&M at Tiger Stadium. The Aggies were ranked eighth in the Power Poll.
