The Tigers and Mississippi State meet at 7 p.m. in a game to be regionally televised by JP Sports. The fan-favorite halftime show "Quick Change" will make its return to the Assembly Center as well for the game. Tickets for the contest ($14 and $5 for youth 12 and under) are available at the LSU Athletics Ticket Office and online at LSUsports.net.
This is LSU's third appearance in the Associated Press poll this year after coming in at No. 24 on the final Monday of November and then making a one-week stop at No. 25 two weeks ago. LSU was also in the ESPN/USA Today poll at No. 25 after the November win over No. 13 West Virginia, but this is LSU's first appearance in the coaches' poll since that date.
LSU is making its 173rd appearance in the AP poll with a 1-2 record as a ranked team this season. LSU is 4-2 in poll history while ranked No. 25 and the three appearances in the AP poll are the most since LSU was ranked three times in December and January during the 2002-03 season.
The Tigers are 8-2 in the Southeastern Conference, leaders of the Western Division by one game over Alabama and one game out of the lead for the SEC overall championship. The Tigers are 16-7 overall for the year.
