released their 2014 preseason rankings and LSU is ranked No. 5. Here is what they had to say about the Tigers in 2014:

3 Best Players: 1) OT La'el Collins, Sr., 2) CB Tre'Davious White, Soph., 3) DE Jermauria Rasco, Sr.
Relative Strengths: 1) O Line, 2) Running Back, 3) D Line
Spotlight Units: 1) Quarterback, 2) Receiver, 3) Linebacker
The season will be a success if … LSU makes it three straight ten-win seasons. There’s enough talent and enough potential to do far more, but with so much youth and so many big personnel changes, getting to ten wins would be fantastic. It would also set the bar at national title or bust in 2015. With games away from Death Valley against Wisconsin, Auburn, Florida, Arkansas and Texas A&M, and with home dates against Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Alabama, can the Tigers get through with two losses or fewer? If they do, they should be among the four in College Football Playoff.
1. Florida State
4. UCLA 5. LSU
6. Michigan State
9. Ohio State
14. South Carolina
17. Texas A&M
18. Ole Miss
19. North Carolina
21. Arizona State
