LSU moved up to No. 8 in the latest ESPN's College Football Power Ranking following the Tigers 32-31 win over Alabama.

Here's what they had to say about LSU:
quote:

8. LSU Tigers (7-2)
To say this team is unrecognizable from the one that lost to Florida State in the season opener wouldn't be true. Some of its flaws -- getting off to slow starts, mental lapses on defense, an overall lack of experience -- are still there. But the way LSU has developed since that Labor Day loss and learned to compensate for its weaknesses has been special. Jayden Daniels has emerged as a playmaker at quarterback who is capable of making things happen with his arm and his legs. And the addition of linebacker Harold Perkins has ignited the defense up front. Suddenly, the Tigers are not just a good story. They're on track to play for the SEC championship. -- Alex Scarborough

Up next: at Arkansas (Saturday, noon ET)
Alabama fell to No. 11 after the loss.

That's not a totally absurd number. Let things settle out over the next 3 weeks. At least they have Bama at 11. Lol.

It's amazing the amount of respect USC is getting with no ranked win. ESPN so desperately wants the Los Angeles team to be good
