One thing is clear: The committee respects Alabama.Despite LSU losing 29-0 to No. 1 Alabama on Saturday (Nov. 3) in Tiger Stadium, LSU only fell four spots to No. 7 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings.
LSU was No. 3 last week in the first rankings of the season.
The committee decided LSU’s impressive schedule was enough to keep them ranked highly, along with a respect for how dominant Alabama is.
