Here's how far LSU football fell in the latest College Football Playoff rankings

BATON ROUGE - LSU football fell nine spots to No. 14 in the College Football Playoff rankings on Tuesday following last week's stunning upset to Texas A&M in College Station, Texas.

LSU (9-3) will try to bounce back against No. 1 Georgia (12-0) in the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta on Saturday (3 p.m., CBS). It will be just the third time since 2011 that the Tigers have played for the SEC title.

LSU played Georgia in the past two appearances in the SEC Championship Game and won each time, defeating the Bulldogs 37-10 in 2019 and 42-10 in 2011. If LSU wins Saturday, it will capture its 13th SEC Championship in program history and sixth win in the championship game format.
