LSU is ranked No. 4 in Fox Sports' college football preseason poll released on Wednesday.

Alabama tops the poll at No. 1 followed by Florida State at No. 2, Clemson at No. 3, LSU and Oklahoma at No. 5. 

Fox Sports college football analyst Stewart Mandell's outlook on the Tigers is a familiar one:

This is easily Les Miles’ most talented team since the 2011 squad that reached the BCS championship game, starting first and foremost with RB Leonard Fournette. The Tigers took a step back on defense the past couple of years, but new coordinator Dave Aranda has a proven track record and stars like DE Arden Key and LB Kendell Beckwith. As always, Miles needs more consistency from QB Brandon Harris in order to win big.  

The Tigers arrived on campus Wednesday morning, as they reported to fall camp as a team. 

The SEC placed six teams in the top 25: 

1. Alabama
4. LSU
9. Tennessee
18. Ole Miss
22. Texas A&M
24. Florida
