The USA TODAY coaches' preseason poll came out Monday afternoon, and LSU was not in the number.
It's the first time the Tigers have not been ranked in the coaches' preseason top 25 since 2000. LSU did receive 143 votes which would rank them 30th.
The Tigers will get their first shot to prove themselves on Sunday, Sept. 4th at 6:30 p.m.
Brian Kelly and the new look Bayou Bengalis take on Florida State in New Orleans at the Caesars Superdome.
The game airing right here on KATC.
