BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - CBS Sports has released its preseason top 25 poll and LSU starts the season at No. 24.
Chip Patterson, staff writer for CBS Sports, said the not so impressive ranking by voters is "perhaps because of the shaky quarterback situation in Baton Rouge."
The SEC has seven teams in the top 25 led by No. 4 Alabama. Auburn checks in at No. 6, followed by Georgia (No. 8), Ole Miss (No. 14), Arkansas (No. 21), Missouri (No. 22) and LSU (No. 24).
The Ohio State Buckeyes are the top ranked team in the country followed by TCU and Baylor.
LSU opens the season at home against McNeese State on Saturday, Sept. 5 at 6:30 p.m.
