Being number one is nice but it doesn't mean shite at the end of October (see 2015 LSU Tigers for more details). Personally I think Clemson should be #1 (they are the defending champs and undefeated after all) followed by the winner of LSU/Bama and the winner of OSU/PSU followed by the losers of LSU/Bama and OSU/PSU and the winner of UGA/UF.

I fully agree that being number one right now does not matter. At all. If LSU takes care of business through the season they will be number 1. With every vote. But why do you think it matters that Clemson is the defending champ?

LSU was #4 going in to the Bama game in 2015. Not #1.

40-7 is absurd. I understand Alabama at #1 but not by that much.

Up to this point, LSU has played better football against better teams. Does not mean they are the better team. We will find out whose better when they square off.

I do not like this. LSU plays better when they have something to prove. Hopefully they play better against bama than they did yesterday. Looks like the loser of the LSU bama game will back door the CFP. That's if the loser goes undefeated the rest of the season. But then that would be a first game between number 1 and number 4 in the CFP, LSU versus bama. I'd imagine Ohio St number 3, Clem number 3, bama number 4. This is if LSU beats bama and wins out. Be nice to beat bama twice in one season. Then play Ohio st in the CFP final. Smoking Joe versus his old team. Lot of story lines there. Smoking Joe uses his legs to pull out the victory. LSU's defense has best showing of the season. LSU wins NC!!!

Zero percent chance any Tiger steps onto Bama's field in two weeks feeling like they have nothing to prove since some media personalities voted them #1.

Texas and Auburn aren't top 10 teams. Texas might not even be ranked this week. No bias, just as in previous seasons, like Miami last year, we're finding out as the season goes, these "top 10" teams aren't really even top 25 teams.

Still a better schedule than anyone else in the top 5. Zero reason for LSU to not be #1 right now.

Quiet down Bama boy. Texas will finish ranked, as well as Auburn and UF.

Hey numbnuts, it doesn't work like that in the football world. Maybe in the band but not football world! They beat 3 teams that was ranked in the top 10 at the time they played! Go back to band world!
