LSU has done everything it can to get ranked.

Yet the Tigers are still sitting outside the Ferris Mowers USA TODAY Sports Coaches poll they received a total of 12 votes. In the AP Top 25, receiving six votes in this week’s poll.

LSU is currently undefeated (4-0) and has beaten the three opponents they have faced by an average of 35.5 points.

LSU will face off against the Belmont Bruins Monday night at 7:00 p.m. on SEC Network. Should the Tigers win, as they are favored to do, they should have a lot of confidence heading into their matchup with 2-1 Penn State in the Emerald Coast Classic later this week on Friday. LSU will then face either Wake Forest or Oregon State the following game on November 27th.

If the Tigers manage to come out of this week undefeated they should be ranked in next week’s poll.
