The LSU Fightin' Tigers are back up after being down. The Tigers dropped out of the Top 10 in the AP Top 25 after losing to Mississippi State, but after a 56 point win against New Mexico State, the Tigers are back up a couple spots in the national rankings.

LSU moved up from #17 to #15 in the AP Top 25 after a 63-7 win in Tiger Stadium over the Aggies of New Mexico State.

The story of the game was true freshman Brandon Harris shining during his time on the field.  Harris led LSU to touchdowns on all seven of the drives he was on the field for. Harris has now led the Tigers to nine touchdowns out of 10 possessions he has quarterbacked.  Anthony Jennings started the game and turned the ball over twice.

LSU will take on #5 Auburn on Saturday.
