LSU Is Better Than Ohio State, Says ESPN
LSU is better than Ohio State, says ESPN.
Heading into the home stretch of the college football season, rankings now mean more than they did at any point prior.
On Tuesday night, the most recent College Football Playoff rankings were released. To some people’s surprise, Ohio State jumped to No. 1 over LSU despite the latter program not having suffered any losses.
According to CFP committee chairman Rob Mullens, “Ohio State is a complete team” and their win over Penn State last weekend “solidified that they’re a little bit better (than LSU) on the defensive side of the ball.”
On Wednesday, some folks at ESPN took issue with Mullens’ assessment.
If #LSU beats Georgia in the SEC championship they will be the first team in almost 80 years to beat five Top Ten teams in a season. That they aren’t number one in the country is positively outrageous.

“If LSU beats Georgia in the SEC championship they will be the first team in almost 80 years to beat five Top Ten teams in a season,” ESPN analyst Mike Greenberg tweeted out.
“That they aren’t number one in the country is positively outrageous.”
If both Ohio State and LSU win out the remainder of their games, it is difficult to see a scenario where LSU can jump back to No. 1. The Buckeyes would have to lose in order for that to happen.
