BATON ROUGE -- Three games into a month with only one contest in Tiger Stadium, the LSU football team jumped to No. 2 in this week's AP Top 25 and remained No. 3 in the USA Today Coaches Poll, it was announced on Sunday.

The Tigers continued to trade places with SEC rival Alabama in the writers' poll, as the Tide returned to No. 3.

LSU (3-0, 1-0 SEC) countines its road swing when it travels to No. 16 West Virginia for a 7 p.m. CT kickoff. ESPN College GameDay will once again feature the Tigers when it visits Morgantown, W.Va., for the first time.
