ESPN released Week 3 Power Rankings this week and pegged LSU at No. 7 following Saturday's 22-21 win over Auburn at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Here's what they had to say about the Tigers:

7. LSU
Week 3 result: Defeated Auburn 22-21
What's next: vs. Louisiana Tech (Saturday, 7 p.m. ET)

Quarterback Joe Burrow isn't flashy, but he showed a lot of grit in leading the Tigers to a victory over Auburn on the road. He threw a 71-yard touchdown to Derrick Dillon in the fourth quarter, and then led LSU on a late drive to set up Cole Tracy's winning 42-yard field goal on the final play.
Auburn dropped down to No. 13 in the power rankings after the loss.

Top 10:
1. Alabama
2. Ohio State
3. Georgia
4. Clemson
5. Oklahoma
6. Stanford
7. LSU
8. West Virginia
9. Penn State
10. Mississippi State

I can see at least a weak argument for all the Top 5, but Stanford being above us makes no sense.

I agree. Stanford has been unimpressive against inferior competition. A win VS Southern Cal this year doesn't mean much at all.
