LSU nowhere to be found in the Week 1 USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll after loss to Florida State

·2 min read

LSU is still undoubtedly processing the disappointment of Brian Kelly’s debut on Sunday night when a blocked extra point spoiled a comeback bid against Florida State in the 24-23 loss.

The Tigers hope to tune things up in their home opener against Southern on Saturday night before Mississippi State comes to town to open SEC play the following week. In the meantime, they’re unsurprisingly on the outside looking in when it comes to the USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll after Week 1, not receiving any votes in this update.

In total, seven SEC teams appear in the rankings. That includes previously unranked Florida, which is up to No. 19 after beating No. 7 Utah as a home underdog on Saturday.
