No game this week for the LSU Tigers as they were on a bye. On Saturday they will head to Tuscaloosa for a showdown with the Alabama Crimson Tide. Much like the Tigers, their opponents were on a bye.

USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll was released on Sunday. The Georgia Bulldogs remained as the consensus No. 1 team in the country collecting all 64 first-place votes. The top five teams remained in their spots with movement among the other 20 teams in the poll.

Alabama is ranked No. 3 and Texas A&M comes in at No. 12. Those opponents will sandwich the Arkansas and UL-Monroe games for the LSU Tigers.

A look at the full coaches poll after this week’s slate of games.
