The countdown is on for the 2022 season where the LSU Tigers open up the slate against the Florida State Seminoles in New Orleans. The team won’t leave the Boot until Oct. 1 when they travel to Jordan-Hare Stadium to face the Auburn Tigers.

New head coach Brian Kelly and his staff do have work to do in preparation for the upcoming spring football schedule and the 2022 season. The quarterback is going to be a huge talking point for the team. Will they role with the sixth-year senior Myles Brennan? Or will it be one of the young guns with redshirt freshman Garrett Nussmeier or incoming freshman Walker Howard?

There is still plenty of time to see just how they approach the season. Until then we have the way-too-early top 25 rankings being produced already. Not even 24 hours after the Georgia Bulldogs were able to knock off the Alabama Crimson Tide in the title game. Would you put the Tigers in the early top 25?

The Sporting News did just that as they ranked the LSU Tigers at No. 23 in their way-too-early poll.

What The Sporting News Said…

LSU made the splash hire of the offseason by luring Brian Kelly away from Notre Dame. Kelly has more than just his Southern accent to work on. The Tigers are 11-12 the last two seasons. Kelly convinced Myles Brennan to stay on at quarterback, and the Tigers still have enough NFL talent on the roster to string together a nine-win season. The opener is against Florida State in New Orleans

A total of eight SEC teams made the top 25 with both future teams making the early top 25 as well.
