LSU has returned to the top 25.

The Tigers, absent from the polls for two weeks, are No. 23 in the latest coaches poll and No. 24 in the Associated Press top 25, both released Sunday.

LSU (6-2, 2-2 Southeastern) has rebounded from an 0-2 conference hole to win two straight and reach bowl eligibility for a school-record 15th consecutive season. The Tigers beat Kentucky 41-3 Saturday night in the second-worst defeat in the 57-game series between the teams.

LSU fell from the rankings for the first time in nearly six years after a 41-7 loss to Auburn, the worst defeat in 15 years.

The Tigers meet No. 3 Ole Miss (7-0, 4-0) at 6:15 p.m. Saturday in Tiger Stadium. ESPN College GameDay will originate from Baton Rouge on Saturday morning.
