LSU is sitting at No. 1 in ESPN's latest College Football Power Rankings after beating Texas A&M 50-7 in Week 14.

The Tigers are ahead of Ohio State, Clemson, and Utah.

1. LSU (12-0)

In his final game at Tiger Stadium on Saturday night, LSU quarterback Joe Burrow broke the SEC record for passing yards in a season, tied the league mark for passing touchdowns in a season and probably locked up the Heisman Trophy -- if there were any doubts remaining about him winning the stiff-armed award. Burrow completed 23 of 32 passes for 352 yards with three touchdowns in a 50-7 rout of Texas A&M. His 4,366 passing yards this season breaks the previous SEC mark of 4,275 set by Kentucky's Tim Couch in 1998. Burrow also has thrown 44 touchdowns this season, which ties Drew Lock's total at Missouri in 2017. Even more impressive, Burrow has completed a whopping 78.3% of his 401 attempts this season, which would break the FBS record of 76.7% set by Texas' Colt McCoy in 2008. The Tigers led the Aggies 31-0 at the half and outgained them 324-40 in total yards in the first two quarters. The Aggies finished with 169 yards with three turnovers.

The article says "If Clemson, Georgia, LSU and Ohio State win their respective conference championship games this coming weekend, they'll be among the four teams playing for a national title." That's quality journalism!

Literally the next line in the article... "Georgia and LSU, which will meet in the SEC championship game, probably won't both go to the CFP, so that potentially leaves one spot for Baylor or Oklahoma, who will play in the Big 12 championship game, or Utah, which plays Oregon in the Pac-12 title game."
