BATON ROUGE -- After Les Miles earned his 100th career win on Saturday at Tiger Stadium, his Tigers remained No. 1 in the Bowl Championship Series standings.

Along the way, LSU received every first-place vote in the USA Today Coaches' Poll, the AP Top 25 and the Harris Interactive Poll. It was the first time since Sept. 25, 2008, that one team swept the AP Poll's first-place votes in the regular season.

LSU, 10-0 for the first time since winning its first national championship in 1958, takes to the road for a 6 p.m. CST kickoff against Ole Miss (2-8, 0-6 SEC) on Saturday. The game will be televised by ESPN.
