LSU is ranked No. 9 in the latest College Football Rankings from ESPN. Here's what they had to say about the Tigers.

9. LSU (9-2, 5-2 SEC)

Week 12 result: Defeated Rice 42-10
What's next: at Texas A&M (7:30 p.m. ET Saturday, SEC Network)

One-win Rice, which has been at the very bottom of the Bottom 10 for the past couple of weeks, was the $1.4 million solution (their paycheck for the trouble) to LSU's recent offensive woes on Saturday night. Joe Burrow threw for a season-high 307 of the Tigers' 552 total yards. It was the first time Burrow had managed at least 200 yards since the Oct. 13 win over Georgia. The Tigers' defense showed up as expected, holding the lowly Owls to only 198 yards, despite Rice holding the ball for more than 35 minutes. But nothing that happened in Death Valley proved much that we didn't already know about both teams.
