ESPN released updated College Football Power Rankings this week and pegged LSU at No. 6.

Texas, who LSU will face in Week 2 are No. 7 in the power rankings.

Here's what they had to say about the Tigers and Longhorns.

6. LSU (1-0)

The Tigers' new hurry-up, no-huddle spread offense was a welcome sight for long-suffering LSU fans in a 55-3 rout of Georgia Southern. Quarterback Joe Burrow completed 23 of 27 passes for 278 yards and five touchdowns with nearly all of his production coming in the first half. The Tigers scored 21 points in the first and second quarters each -- after failing to score three touchdowns in any quarter in 2018. The Tigers averaged only 3.7 yards per carry, but new passing game coordinator Joe Brady saved a few wrinkles for next week's trip to Texas.

7. Texas (1-0)

The Longhorns had to replace eight defensive starters from last season's 10-4 team, and the early results for coordinator Todd Orlando were encouraging in a 45-14 victory over Louisiana Tech. The Longhorns pitched a shutout for the first three quarters, forced three turnovers (a roughing-the-passer penalty negated a fourth turnover, a pick-six) and allowed only 73 rushing yards. It was a good start with LSU's high-powered offense coming to Austin next week for what might be the biggest nonconference game since No. 1 Ohio State played there in 2006.
Top 10:
1. Clemson (1-0)
2. Alabama (1-0)
3. Georgia (1-0)
4. Oklahoma (1-0)
5. Ohio State (1-0)
6. LSU (1-0)
7. Texas (1-0)
8. Michigan (1-0)
9. Notre Dame (1-0)
10. Auburn (1-0)

I can't remember ESPN ever referring to "LSU's high-powered offense". What a welcome upgrade.

They justify bumping Texas up 3 spots. When LA Tech had almost 400 yards of offense against Texas. But keep LSU at the same spot when GA Southern only had 97 yards of total offense for the entire game. SMH!!
