Two weeks ahead of their matchup with Alabama, the LSU Tigers jumped the Tide in the rankings to earn their first #1 ranking in 8 years.

The Top 25 AP Poll was released Sunday, and LSU moved up from #2 to #1, while the Tide fell from #1 to #2.

It's one of the closest polls ever in regards to the voting difference between #1 and #2.

LSU earned 1,476 points, only 2 more than Alabama.

The last time the margin between #1 and #2 was as close was October 5, 2014, when Florida State was 2 points ahead of Auburn on Oct. 5, 2014.

The ranking won't matter in 13 days when Bama hosts LSU, as the winner will be the clear cut #1 with a margin much wider than 2 points.
