The preseason Associated Press (AP) poll has been released and the LSU Tigers football team finds themselves ranked in the #3 spot in the poll.

The Tigers were the #1 ranking in the USA Today/Coaches poll.  Did the loss of Tyrann Mathieu from the LSU football team cause them to drop in the rankings?

The LSU Football team will begin the 2012 season ranked No. 3 by the Associated Press, as the writers voted USC No. 1 followed by Alabama.

Only twice in school history have the Tigers been ranked higher in the AP Top 25 to start the season: No. 1 1959 and No. 2 2007.
