·2 min read

The LSU Tigers won their first game against a ranked opponent in their third attempt of the year. After losing to a ranked Auburn Tigers and Kentucky Wildcats squads, the Bayou Bengals were able to withstand the offensive onslaught of the No. 17 ranked Florida Gators on Saturday. The Tigers face their fourth ranked opponent in as many games with the Ole Miss Rebels, who were able to survive in Knoxville.

USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll was released on Sunday. The remaining ranked opponents on the schedule include Ole Miss, Alabama, and Texas A&M. The Arkansas Razorbacks were ranked in the top 20 but another loss knocked them out of the top 25, as they continue to trend in the wrong direction. The Gators were also knocked out after the loss to LSU.
