With the 2017 college football season less than two weeks away now, another preseason poll was released yesterday.

A few weeks ago, the Coaches poll was released and the LSU Tigers football team landed in the #12 spot in that poll.  Well yesterday, the AP poll was released and the Tigers weren't as fortunate.

LSU garnered a #13 preseason ranking in the AP poll.  Other SEC teams ahead of LSU in the polls are The Auburn Tigers who are ranked #12 and Alabama are ranked the #1 team in the country.  Bama also is ranked #1 in the coaches poll that was released a few weeks ago.

Other SEC teams in the top 25 are Georgia at #15, Florida at #17 and Tennessee at #25.

LSU opens up the 2017 season against BYU in Houston Texas at NRG stadium.  Kickoff is slated for 8:30 p.m. and will be televised live nationally on ESPN.
