BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

LSU is once again a popular pick for a spot in the NCAA Football Playoffs this year. That is with a few exceptions.

CBS Sports writer Tom Fornelli believes LSU is the most overhyped preseason team in the nation. 

The explanation behind these rankings is that LSU has Leonard Fournette, dangerous receivers like Malachi Dupre and Travin Dural, what should be a strong defense ... and questions at quarterback. So, you know, LSU is basically in the same position it was in heading into last season when it had Leonard Fournette, dangerous receivers like Malachi Dupre and Travin Dural, what should be a strong defense ... and questions at quarterback. 

Fornelli did say the Tigers may end up being the team that many believe they will be, but LSU will need to break the five-game losing streak to Alabama to achieve that goal.

"We should all wait until it actually happens, though," he said.

The top 5 Overhyped Preseason Teams according to Tom Fornelli:

  1. LSU
  2. Washington
  3. Tennessee
  4. Louisville
  5. Washington State
