NEW YORK (WAFB) - LSU climbed to No. 17 in the AP Top 25 Poll, while moving up just one spot in the Coaches Poll after a convincing win over Vanderbilt and Louisiana-Lafayette is No. 23 in both of the major polls.

What a difference a week makes? The Tigers undoubtedly felt much better about themselves leaving the stadium Saturday night in Nashville than they did a week ago when Death Valley was in shock over that loss to Mississippi State.

The Tigers went on a 41-7 rout of the Commodores for their first win of the 2020 season and the first of Myles Brennan’s career as a starter.
