Tigers remain No. 1 in all polls

LSU remained No. 1 in the Bowl Championship Series Standings on Sunday, a day after the top-ranked Tigers shook off a pesky Ole Miss team for a 41-24 victory in Oxford.

It's the second straight week in which the Tigers have occupied the top spot in the BCS Standings.

The victory over Ole Miss ran LSU's record to 10-1 overall as the Tigers claimed the school's first outright Southeastern Conference Western Division title with the win over the Rebels. LSU goes into Friday's regular season finale against Arkansas with a 6-1 league record, one win shy tying the school-record for conference victories in a season.

By recording its 10th win of the season against Ole Miss, the Tigers have now won at least 10 games for three straight years, a first in the history of the program.

After this week's game against Arkansas, the Tigers will face either Georgia or Tennessee in the SEC Championship Game on Dec. 1 in the Georgia Dome. LSU needs wins in its next two games to advance to the BCS National Championship Game for the second time in four years.

In this week's BCS Standings, the Tigers accumulated an average of .9904, which puts LSU ahead of second-place and undefeated Kansas, who has a .9488 average. West Virginia has snuck up to No. 3 in the standings with a .8788 average, followed by Missouri (.8707) and Ohio State (.8602).

LSU is also No. 1 in the USA Today Coaches Poll as well as the Harris Interactive Poll, both of which combine to make up two of the three components of the BCS formula. The Tigers also have a composite computer ranking of No. 1, which is the third component of the BCS formula.

LSU made it a consensus No. 1 for a second straight week by taking the top spot in the Associated Press Top 25 this week. The AP Poll is not part of the BCS formula.

The top two teams in the BCS Standings on Sunday, Dec. 2 will meet in the national championship game in the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans on Jan. 7.
