LSU wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. (6), tight end Stephen Sullivan (10) and wide receiver Justin Jefferson (2) have helped the Tigers put up big numbers in their first three games. On Saturday, they get to face a porous Vanderbilt defense.

After a thrilling victory over the Texas Longhorns Saturday night in Austin, the LSU Tigers made a big leap in the latest AP poll.

LSU is now in the top 4, leapfrogging both Ohio State and Oklahoma to No. 4 following the 45-38 win on the road and have 1,336 points in the poll. Texas, who entered Saturday's matchup ranked No. 9, fell 3 spots to No. 12. 

The Tigers also jumped up a spot in the Amway Coaches Poll, taking the No. 5 spot from now No. 6 Ohio State. 

LSU was previously ranked No. 6 heading into Saturday's game on the heels of a 55-3 walloping of Georgia Southern to kickoff the 2019 season.

Rounding out the Top 5 in the AP Poll is No. 1 Clemson, No. 2 Alabama, No. 3 Georgia and No. Oklahoma.
