LSU (7-2) dropped down to No. 7 in the College Football Rankings after last Saturday's loss to Alabama, staying ahead of one-loss teams: Washington State, West Virginia, and Ohio State.

Committee Chair Rob Mullens spoke with ESPN's Rece Davis after the rankings came out on Tuesday night and explained why the Tigers only dropped down to No. 7.

“Well, obviously a loss to No. 1 Alabama was seen by the committee, but LSU does have the most wins against top 25 ranked teams from this ranking this week,” Mullen said.

"They did beat Auburn, Georgia and Mississippi State. So, the committee weighed that heavily with their only losses being to Alabama and on the road to Florida. So with that strong defense, still felt they were a good team.”
Mullens starts discussing LSU's ranking at :52 seconds into the video below.

You can see it in rece’s face “LSU blown out at home” against alabama. Blah blah. Dude is in the tank for bama

Really hope Texas A&M wins their next two so they can hopefully be ranked when we play them and then we can knock them out of the top 25 and get another quality win on the resume.

Careful what you wish for. Is Burrow capable of exploiting the A&M secondary? Is the LSU run defense able to contain Williams and Corbin?

Picture this: we meet bama in the champ game and flip the script, winning the second go around. Would be epic!

Can we get into this playoff? A loss to bama in the title game gives UGA two losses, we gave them the other... How do they not put us ahead of them in that scenario. We need Michigan and Oklahoma to lose and I think both are very possible. They both have big rivalry games and such... Could we possibly get into the playoff with two loses?!?! ... And we were supposed to suck this year.

As hard as I melted Saturday, if we even just got another shot to play bammer then lost but at least played a competitive game, man that would be acceptable. All I wanted thenither night. Actually beat them? Next level stuff. Payback, too.

We certainly need those ahead of us to lose but it is just as important as who they lose to. A Michigan loss to Indiana would be better than a loss to Ohio State.

We got in with 2 losses in 2007 when it was only top 2 teams. Anything could happen...but its very unlikely. Yes, if we finish 10-2 and Georgia loses the SEC title game then we should move ahead of UGA. Then we would need Notre Dame to lose, Ohio State/Michigan winner to lose in the Big Ten championship game. West Virginia beating Oklahoma then losing to Texas in the Big 12 championship game would help too.
