BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - LSU’s 46-41 win over Alabama in Tuscaloosa has moved the Tigers into the top spot by a landslide in both major college football polls. It is likely they will also jump to No. 1 in the College Football Playoff rankings when those are released Tuesday.

LSU (9-0, 5-0 SEC) was already No. 1 in the AP poll but the win over Alabama, the previous No. 1 in the Coaches poll, has moved the Tigers into that spot.

AP POLL:

  1. LSU (9-0) [54 first-place votes]
  2. Ohio State (9-0) [5 first-place votes]
  3. Clemson (10-0) [3 first-place votes]
  4. Alabama (8-1)
  5. Georgia (8-1)
  6. Oregon (9-1)
  7. Minnesota (9-0)
  8. Utah (8-1)
