LSU took an expected tumble in both polls on Sunday.
The Bulldogs (4-0) moved into the coaches rankings at No. 16 and are No. 14 in the AP poll.
LSU’s plummet is the biggest drop in the coaches poll since falling 11 spots in 2008. The Tigers fell from No. 3 to No. 14 after a 51-21 loss at Florida that season. The nine-spot fall is the biggest in the AP poll since 2004, when LSU dropped from No. 13 to No. 24 after a 45-16 loss at Georgia.
Mississippi State snapped a 14-game losing streak to LSU and won for the first time in Tiger Stadium since 1991. State quarterback Dak Prescott accounted for three touchdowns and 373 yards, and the Bulldogs rolled up 570 yards, the most allowed by LSU in coach Les Miles 10 years in Baton Rouge.
