LSU at No. 11 in AP poll

The LSU Tigers are No. 11 in the preseason AP poll.

So what does that mean for Tigers football fans?

Actually, it's not the worst news you'll probably hear today. Two years ago, Ohio State was ranked No. 11 in the preseason AP poll. The Buckeyes went on to play LSU for the national championship that season.

And LSU's 2003 national championship season began with the Tigers ranked No. 14 in the preseason AP poll.

That being said, it appears the Tigers are another year or so away from making a run at the national title. I say that because only four times since 1991 has a team from outside the preseason top 10 won the national title. The last time was LSU in 2003.

LSU obviously has to win some key games to finish in the top 10. It's encouraging, though, that Jefferson was 16 of 24 in passing for 200 yards and 2 TDs vs. the 1st team defense in the scrimmage on Aug. 22
