ESPN pegged LSU at No. 17 in their College Football Power Rankings after the blowout loss to No. 8 Florida State in the season opener.

The Seminoles jumped to No. 2 after the win over LSU.

No. 17 LSU Tigers (0-1)
The offense clearly needs some work after a lousy effort against Florida State, particularly in the red zone. And while quarterback Jayden Daniels showed once again he's a big play waiting to happen running the football, he's yet to prove he can consistently push the ball downfield in the passing game. But perhaps more troubling was the play of the secondary, which flat out got exposed by Keon Coleman, Johnny Wilson & Co. Getting Maason Smith back at tackle and pairing him alongside Mekhi Wingo should help when it comes to pressuring the quarterback, but the DBs have to step up. Grambling offers a good opportunity to regroup this Saturday, but don't sleep on a trip to Mississippi State the following week, where quarterback Will Rogers won't be afraid to put the ball in the air. -- Scarborough

Up next: vs. Grambling (7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN+)
The AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll will come out on Tuesday. Where do you think the Tigers will land?

silly voter polls are meaningless and irrelevant. Ignore them all.

I'm convinced 90% know as much about football, as you do about biomolecular engineering.

So, the Tigers lose to who they consider the #2 team in the country and drop them TWELVE spots. Let’s see how much Bama or Texas drops after losing this weekend.

We got beat by a great team. We didn't lose to Army. You guys really get your hopes waaaaay too high without watching anyone play a snap. Man y'all depressing.
