LSU moved to No. 1 in ESPN's College Football Rankings after Saturday's 42-28 win over Florida. Here's what they said about the Tigers.

1. LSU (6-0)

The Tigers made a strong case for No. 1 by knocking off Florida 42-28 at home on Saturday night. Coupled with a win at Texas in the opener, LSU might have the most impressive pair of wins by any FBS team in the first half of the season. It was another big victory for LSU coach Ed Orgeron. His teams have seven wins over AP top-10 opponents since 2016; only Nick Saban and Urban Meyer had more, with nine each. LSU's offense continued to roll against Florida's well-respected defense. Quarterback Joe Burrow completed 21 of 24 passes for 293 yards with three touchdowns, and tailback Clyde Edwards-Helaire ran 13 times for 134 yards with two scores. The Tigers had two 100-yard receivers: Ja'Marr Chase caught seven passes for 127 yards with two scores, and Justin Jefferson had 10 receptions for 123 yards with one score.

Up next: at Mississippi State (Saturday, 2:30 p.m. CT)

Is this the year LSU makes Alabama look like tapioca pudding when you asked for chocolate?

If the gumps score 50 we will score 70+. No chance this year. Their defense is Mediocre and the offense is slightly above avg

I personally think Wisconsin should be #2 behind LSU. The gumps, Clemson and OSU have yet to play anyone.
