LSU moved up to No. 3 in ESPN's College Football Power Rankings after Saturday's 45-38 win over Texas in Austin. The Tigers were No. 6 in the Power Rankings last week. Here's what they had to say about LSU:

3. LSU (2-0)
The Tigers' new-look offense is for real, and even more surprising, their coaching staff seems committed to opening up the passing game. LSU quarterback Joe Burrow completed 31 of 39 passes for 471 yards with four touchdowns and one interception in a 45-38 victory at Texas. Burrow is the first LSU quarterback to throw for more than 400 passing yards against an AP-ranked opponent since Rohan Davey against Illinois in the 2002 Sugar Bowl. For the first time in school history, the Tigers had three 100-yard receivers (Justin Jefferson had nine catches for 163 yards, Ja'Marr Chase had eight for 147 and Terrace Marshall Jr. had six for 123). One big concern: LSU's defense surrendered 409 passing yards and 38 points.

Up next: vs. Northwestern State (Saturday, 7:30 p.m. ET, SECN)
Top 10:
1. Clemson (2-0)
2. Alabama (2-0)
3. LSU (2-0)
4. Georgia (2-0)
5. Oklahoma (2-0)
6. Ohio State (2-0)
7. Notre Dame (1-0)
8. Auburn (2-0)
9. Utah (2-0)
10. Florida (2-0)

We should be ranked at least #3 in every poll if it's about the current resume- because no one else has one like ours, at this point.
