LSU ends the season as the only undefeated team in the Football Bowl Subdivision. The Tigers beat eight teams ranked in the top 25 this season at the time of their meeting, and ran through the SEC undefeated for the first time in school history.
Thirteen victories, almost all of which came in a national spotlight, gave the Tigers the exposure they needed and they delivered on the spotlight, allowing LSU to be the undeniable No. 1 team in the country. The Tigers even received a perfect score from the BCS in the last two weeks, as the computer rankings also respected the Tigers’ overall resume.
The Tigers are likely to face Alabama in the title game, a rematch of a 9-6 Tigers victory earlier this season.
