The Tigers face Arkansas and potentially Georgia the next two weeks.
The LSU Tigers clearly have the best resume in college football and of course are ranked No. 1. But after watching top team after top team fall over the last month, you have to wonder if Les Miles’ bunch can finish the season with a perfect record and head to the BCS Championship Game. It seems like most of the college football world is already assuming the Tigers will cruise to the national title game, but they face the No.
I don’t vote in the two polls that make up two-thirds of the BCS standings — the coaches poll and the Harris poll. But I do a weekly ranking, of all 120 FBS teams, on our website. And it is something I take seriously. It’s not rocket science, but it does take some time to sort through every team and determine where they should be ranked based on which teams they beat (and when they beat them) and which teams they lost to (and when they lost).
