BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU is off to a 5-0 start, but the Tigers have seen their ranking drop from No. 1 in the first preseason poll to No. 4 in Sunday's latest AP poll.

Why?

A schedule against five teams with a combined 8-14 record -- a list that includes teams from the FCS (2-2 Towson), the WAC (0-5 Idaho) and The Sun Belt (2-3 North Texas) -- has done little to inspire. Even LSU's one SEC game so far was versus a 1-3 Auburn team that appears to be going through a down year. And LSU struggled to win that one, holding on for a 12-10 win.
