Tigers jumped in AP Poll, hold place after Week 12

LSU took care of business on Saturday, winning 41-10 in a Senior Night contest against UAB. However, in spite of the big win, the Tigers remained at No. 6 in the AP Top 25 after Week 12.

Coach Brian Kelly’s team previously ranked ahead of USC despite the fact that the Trojans have just one loss. But after Lincoln Riley’s squad took down rival UCLA on the road Saturday night, it jumped LSU and moved up to No. 5 in the rankings after Tennessee dropped out with a blowout loss at South Carolina.

The Tigers also rank No. 6 in the USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll this week, but they previously ranked behind the Trojans in that poll and moved up one spot this week.

Here’s how the full top 25 breaks down in this week’s AP Poll.
