LSU still receiving votes in latest USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll

[ad_1]

The Tigers looked good once again on Saturday night as they won their third-straight game, this time in shutout fashion against New Mexico in the final tuneup before the team begins its main SEC slog.

LSU seems to be improved from Week 1, but it is still likely a big win from finding itself ranked in the top 25. In the latest USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll, coach Brian Kelly’s team received four votes, doubling its total from last week. Still, the team sits a bit of a way from the rankings.

As far as the rest of the SEC, Georgia and Alabama remained No. 1 and 2, respectively, while No. 8 Kentucky and No. 9 Tennessee both sit in the top 10 after the latter took down Florida for just the second time since 2004. Ole Miss is up to No. 11, and Texas A&M is up to No. 17 after its big win over Arkansas.

The Razorbacks, meanwhile, fell nine spots to No. 19.
