BATON ROUGE -- Following a 49-3 victory over Northwestern State on Saturday at Tiger Stadium, the LSU football team was ranked No. 3 in both the AP Top 25 and the USA Today Coaches Poll released on Sunday.

In the writers' poll, LSU (2-0) received more first-place votes than SEC rival Alabama -- and the same number as last's week's poll. However, the Tide jumped the Tigers following its victory over Penn State.

LSU remained third in the coaches' poll, improving by six points in the poll.

The Tigers next face No. 25 Mississippi St. (1-1) on Thursday evening in Starkville, Miss. The game will be televised nationally by ESPN.
