BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The LSU Tigers have moved up to No. 4 in the country in the latest AP Top 25 poll released on Sunday, Oct. 21.

LSU defeated the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Saturday 19-3. In the fourth quarter, LSU LB Devin White was penalized for targeting MSU’s QB Nick Fitzgerald and ejected. Because the ejection happened in the second half of the game, White will sit out the first half of LSU’s next game, a vital one, against No. 1 Alabama on Nov. 3.
