Where LSU sits in the updated ESPN Football Power Index’s top 25 after Week 0

·3 min read

The Tigers weren’t one of the select few teams in action during Saturday’s Week 0, but its opening opponent was.

Florida State beat Duquesne 47-7 in a tuneup and was one of the highest-profile teams to play. Conference opponent North Carolina also took the field, beating a shorthanded Florida A&M team comfortably. Northwestern also took down Nebraska to begin Big Ten play with a 1-0 record.

Though no teams in the USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll or AP Top 25 played, ESPN’s Football Power Index saw a shakeup in its top 25 after the Tar Heels dropped out.

Here’s what the rankings look like after Week 0, including where the Tigers sit.
