LSU has fallen out of both the Associated Press top 25 and the coaches poll.

Following a 17-0 loss to Arkansas on Saturday night in Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium, the Tigers (7-4, 3-4 SEC) tumbled out of the coaches’ poll and AP top 25 for the second time in 2014. The Tigers were ranked No. 20 in both rankings heading into Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Saturday was the first time LSU had been shut out since the BCS national title game against Alabama following the 2011 season. The Crimson Tide won 21-0.

The Tigers last fell from both polls on Oct. 5 following a 41-7 loss to Auburn. It was the first time LSU dropped from the major rankings in six years.

LSU is off this weekend before traveling to College Station, Texas, for a match with Texas A&M (7-4, 3-4 SEC). The Aggies have suffered losses in four of their previous six contests.

The coaches and AP polls have the same top four: No. 1 Florida State, No. 2 Alabama, No. 3 Oregon and No. 4 Mississippi State. The Bulldogs dropped three spots after falling to the Crimson Tide 25-20 on Saturday night.
