LSU dropped down two spots to No. 7 in ESPN's College Football Power Rankings during the bye week. The Tigers were jumped by Ohio State and Oklahoma.

7. LSU (4-0, 1-0 SEC)

Now we know the secret to slowing down Joe Burrow and an LSU offense that has put up at least 45 points in each of its first four tilts: an open date. The Tigers scored 231 points in their first four wins before getting this week off. Burrow already has thrown 17 touchdown passes. For perspective, in the previous five seasons, LSU as a team never threw more than 17 touchdown passes the entire season. Ed Orgeron promised that this LSU offense would be different, but did anybody see this coming?

Up next: vs. Utah State (Saturday, noon ET, SEC Network)

They drew names out of a hat. This list is pointless. The teams in the top 10 are solid choices, but the order is nonsense. What win does Ohio State have that tops LSU's Texas win, Indiana?

ESPN doesn’t have to have a formula. It’s an eye test. If we are not Top 4 after being undefeated in December - then I will GAS. Until then, just win baby.

Power ranking? What is that bases on? If strength of schedule I am confused as to how Ohio State is in the top 20 much less # 2
