The LSU Tigers landed at No. 14 on ESPN's College Football Preseason rankings, which came out this week before the Myles Brennan injury was announced.

Alabama was at the top of rankings followed by Oklahoma, Clemson, Georgia, and Ohio State.

14. LSU Tigers

2020 record: 5-5
2021 preseason FPI: 18
Key September game: Sept. 4 at UCLA

Season outlook: Last year was a complete letdown. The wheels came off early, and it took a rally late and a bizarre penalty for a thrown shoe just to finish at .500. Ed Orgeron then went to work, almost entirely remaking his staff, bringing in Daronte Jones to lead the defense and Jake Peetz to run the offense. The latter was a clear move at trying to recapture the magic of Joe Brady's dynamic 2019 offense. The good news is that Peetz has two good options at quarterback: Myles Brennan, who threw for 11 touchdowns in three games before an injury ended his season, or Max Johnson, the freshman who led LSU to a back-to-back wins to salvage an otherwise lost season. -- Scarborough

Cajuns are #23 on that list. Would love to see them wreck Texas week 1. Ruin their whole year
