After LSU’s dominating victory over Northwestern State 49-3 on Saturday at Tiger Stadium, the LSU football team slipped one spot in the AP poll and stayed in the same spot in the USA Today/Coaches poll.  LSU is now rankd No. 3 in both the AP Top 25 and the USA Today Coaches Poll released on Sunday.

In the writers’ poll, LSU (2-0) received more first-place votes than SEC rival Alabama — and the same number as last’s week’s poll. However, the Tide jumped the Tigers following its victory over Penn State.

The Tigers next face No. 25 Mississippi St. (1-1) on Thursday evening in Starkville, Miss. The game will be televised nationally by ESPN. Here is the complete Top 25 polls.
