Only 15 days ago, LSU was ranked No. 4 in both major college football polls and had six first-place votes to its name.
Now, the Tigers aren’t even in the top 25.
Following its 38-17 defeat at the hands of Ole Miss — the first three-game losing streak for the program since 1999 — LSU dropped from No. 17 all the way out of the rankings in this week’s USA Today/coaches poll and the Associated Press Top 25 released Sunday.
The Rebels, meanwhile, climbed from No. 25 to No. 19 in both rankings.
The Tigers (7-3, 4-3 Southeastern) drew the most votes outside of the top 25 in the coaches poll but are unranked for the first time since the final week the 2014 regular season. They beat Texas A&M 23-17 that weekend, and they’ll get another crack at the Aggies (8-3, 4-3 SEC) at 6:30 p.m. Saturday in Tiger Stadium. The game will be televised on the SEC Network.
