LSU Will Begin Season Ranked #13 by AP

NCAA Football - Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl - Miami vs LSU - December 30, 2005

The 2017 Tigers will  kick off the football season ranked at #13 by the Associated Press.

SEC foe, Alabama is at #1 in the AP poll followed by (2) Ohio State, (3) Florida State, (4) USC and (5) Clemson.

The Tigers will take on four top 25 teams, two from the SEC West and two from the East.

The SEC leads the poll with 6 teams, followed by the ACC (5), Big 12 (5), Big Ten (4), Pac-12 (4) and American (1).

Here is a look at how the entire poll played out:


2. Ohio State

3. Florida State

4. USC

5. Clemson

6. Penn State

7. Oklahoma

8. Washington

9. Wisconsin

10. Oklahoma State

11. Michigan

12. Auburn

13. LSU

14. Stanford

15. Georgia

Alabama came within one touchdown of being a wire-to-wire No. 1 team a year ago before falling to Clemson in one of the best national title games in college football history. The Tide lost a number of elite starters on defense, but they return quarterback Jalen Hurts, who could be a Heisman contender and will be relied upon in a leadership role early in the season.

“I want to learn. I don’t want to waste a failure,” Alabama head coach Nick Saban told reporters at SEC media days. “What could we have done better? Because everybody’s hurt by the fact that they lost, especially the way we lost that particular game on the last play of the game, but it wasn’t the last play. It’s what led up to the last play. And I think our players realize that.”
