LSU ranked number 14 in SI's Preseason Top 25 Poll

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

LSU is ranked number 14 in the Sports Illustrated preseason top 25 poll released Wednesday.

The Tigers are one of seven SEC teams ranked in the poll.

Alabama is once again a unanimous number 1 followed by Texas A&M (3), South Carolina (6), Florida (9), Georgia (12), LSU (14)  and Vanderbilt (23).

Although ranked number 14, the SI team says, "Despite losing 11 underclassmen who left early for the NFL, the Tigers will be a threat to knock off Alabama in the SEC West because of the maturation of one player: senior quarterback Zach Mettenberger."

LSU's schedule will include five top 25 teams starting with the Tigers season opener against number 16 TCU.
