After last night's National Championship game between the Tide and the Tigers, the final AP Top 25 Poll came out. LSU finished the season ranked No. 16.

Alabama and Clemson were ranked No. 1 and 2, respectively, while Stanford, Ohio State and Oklahoma rounded out the top 5 in order.

LSU closed out the regular season with a win over Texas A&M and was ranked No. 22 in the country heading into the Texas Bowl. LSU defeated the Red Raiders, 56-27, in an impressive bowl victory to close out the season with a 9-3 finish.

It marked the ninth time that LSU finished in the top 25 in Les Miles’ 11 seasons in Baton Rouge.
