ESPN’s college football writers have updated their power rankings following Week 7 of the 2019 regular season. A new team is at No. 1.
The post-Week 7 power rankings have LSU, following its big win at home against Florida, at No. 1 overall. The Tigers have two of the best wins in the country, beating Texas on the road and Florida at home.
“The Tigers made a strong case for No. 1 by knocking off Florida 42-28 at home on Saturday night. Coupled with a win at Texas in the opener, LSU might have the most impressive pair of wins by any FBS team in the first half of the season. It was another big victory for LSU coach Ed Orgeron,” ESPN.com writes.
LSU improved to 6-0 with the win and jumped up to No. 2 in the Associated Press top 25. The Tigers and the Crimson Tide appear to be on a collision course.
Here’s ESPN’s full top 15:
- Ohio State
- Penn State
- Notre Dame
- Boise State
