Mike Huguenin has a series of impressive facts about LSU:
LSU is playing its third consecutive game while ranked No. 1 in the nation, the first time that has happened since the 1959 season. LSU is 16-3 all-time in games played as the nation’s top-ranked team, which includes a 4-2 mark under Les Miles.
Those two losses under Miles were both in triple-overtime games in 2007. And LSU still wound up winning the MNC that season.
LSU has won seven consecutive games by double digits, one shy of tying the school-record streak set in 1936.
That streak includes wins over five ranked opponents.
LSU hasn’t trailed since the second quarter of the season-opener against Oregon.
That covers games with three ranked opponents. All in all, it’s a pretty good case for why the Tigers are ranked #1.
