The LSU Tigers’ perfect run came to end last week when they traveled to Auburn to take on the Tigers basketball team. Auburn was ranked No. 11 and climbed up to spots to No. 9 after knocking off Will Wade’s squad.

LSU dropped five spots to No. 21 as a result of that SEC opener. Focus shifts to Kentucky on Tuesday night as they look to avoid making it two losses in a row. The Tigers were the last remaining undefeated team in the SEC.

The top seven stayed intact with the Baylor Bears receiving all 32 first-place votes. Auburn remains the highest-ranked team in the conference. LSU will have an opportunity to climb back up in the rankings when they host the No. 13 Kentucky Wildcats. The team will then host No. 18 Tennessee on Saturday.

The Alabama Crimson Tide dropped one spot but is now ranked ahead of LSU by one spot. Those two teams will meet on the hardwood on Jan. 19 when the Tigers head to Tuscaloosa. LSU is the lowest-ranked SEC team inside the top 25. Of their next six games, four will be against ranked opponents with Kentucky, Alabama, and Tennessee twice.
