1. LSU (8-0, 4-0 SEC)

After lighting up scoreboards and overwhelming opponents with sheer firepower on offense, LSU proved on Saturday that it can also grind out a win against a top-10 team. Despite a few hiccups, 118 yards in penalties and being stopped on downs at the goal line, LSU held off Auburn for a 23-20 win, the Tigers' second home victory over a top-10 opponent in as many weeks. They now have an open date before a big showdown with Alabama in two weeks in Tuscaloosa. But what a job Ed Orgeron has done in Baton Rouge. Since losing to Troy on Sept. 30, 2017, LSU is 24-5 with eight wins over top-10 foes.

"the Tigers' second home victory over a top-10 opponent in as many weeks." ESPN needs a new fact-checker. LSU played at MSU the week prior.

Lol. Look at a calendar and count back 14 days and try again. The UF win was 2 weeks ago from this past Saturday.

I see two Texas schools in the top 25, neither of which threw 10's of millions at their coaches.
