LSU continues to climb back up in ESPN's Collge Football Power Rankings after last week's dominant win at Mississippi State.

The Tigers are now ranked No. 13 in the power rankings, just ahead of Alabama.

No. 13 LSU Tigers (2-1)

Maybe the Tigers will look back on the second half against Florida State as a blip on the radar. Maybe not. But the last two weeks -- first beating Grambling and then opening up SEC play with a win at Mississippi State -- they have looked more like the playoff contender we expected entering the season. The offense has been sharp, starting with quarterback Jayden Daniels. Against the Bulldogs, he started out a perfect 13-for-13 passing. And most importantly, he was decisive and willing to take shots downfield, throwing touchdowns of 26 and 33 yards to Malik Nabers. Up next is a home game against Arkansas and a chance to make up for one of the worst offensive performances of last season when the Tigers barely won with one touchdown, two field goals and less than 300 total yards. -- Scarborough

Say what you will about pollsters, LSU almost always seems to be the highest ranked 1 loss team in these things early in the season.
