The Tigers, who have now won seven consecutive games, bring an 8-1 overall mark and a 5-1 league record into Saturday's game against Ole Miss in Oxford. LSU is coming off a 16-13 overtime win over then-No. 3 ranked Alabama last Saturday in Tuscaloosa.
LSU's No. 4 national ranking puts the Tigers in the same position they were in at this point in the season during the national championship campaign in 2003. That year, LSU moved to No. 4 in the nation during the week of Nov. 15 following a 49-10 win over Louisiana Tech.
Following the win over Louisiana Tech in 2003, the Tigers ran their record to 8-1 overall and stood at 4-1 in league play with games against Alabama, Ole Miss and Arkansas remaining on the schedule.
Southern Cal and Texas continue to be ranked Nos. 1-2 in both polls, followed by Miami (Fla.) and LSU. Penn State rounds of the top five in both polls.
Other Southeastern Conference teams in the polls include Alabama at No. 8 in both the AP poll and the coaches poll; Auburn at No. 11 in the AP poll and No. 12 in the coaches poll; Georgia at No. 14 in both polls; South Carolina at No. 19 in the AP poll and No. 21 in the coaches poll; and Florida at No. 20 in both polls.
LSU moves up to No. 4 in both polls
