LSU's scorching finish to the regular season earned it another bump in the rankings.

A sweep of Mississippi State in Starkville, Miss., gave the Tigers a seven game winning streak to close the regular season. 

Heading into this week's Southeastern Conference tournament, LSU has won 12 of its last 14 games to surge into contention for a top eight seed in the NCAA tournament, which would allow it to host tournaments all the way to the College World Series as long as it keeps winning.
