BATON ROUGE -- For the first time since 2007, LSU returned to Tiger Stadium with the No. 1 ranking in the AP Top 25 last week. After a 35-7 victory over Kentucky, the Tigers held on to the top spot in the writers' poll on Sunday.

LSU (5-0, 2-0 SEC) next faces No. 17 Florida (4-1, 2-1 SEC) on Saturday in Tiger Stadium. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. CT on CBS. Fans are encouraged to wear gold for the matchup.

After the Tigers traded places with Alabama for Nos. 2/3 in the coaches poll and then being tied with the Tide last week, LSU regained the No. 2 ranking.
