Tulane's Avery Williams lies atop LSU quarterback Matt Flynn after Flynn fumbled in the first half of Saturday's game.

LSU moved to No. 1 in the latest Associated Press poll, jumping a Southern California team that struggled to beat Washington, 27-24 this weekend. LSU coach Les Miles said the Tigers still have to improve, even after garnering a No. 1 ranking in the poll for the first time since 1959.

"Anyone who voted for us did not get up and watch the telecast [against Tulane]," Miles said in his weekly media briefing Sunday. "Our football team is looking to improve. There's so much time in the season, and there's no reason to think we've arrived."

Miles said his team lacked the focus and intensity to play well against Tulane in the first half of Saturday's game.

LSU is still ranked No. 2 in the USA Today Coaches' Poll, while USC is No. 1 in the same poll.

ok i am glad for them – no really .  although i wasn't a REAL sports fan – the sports dept was treated as if they were God’s team and the rest of us on campus just happened to be there to support them. 
 
there is a saying – all roads lead to Death Valley (Tiger Stadium)… and its true – on game days, all campus roads lead to the stadium prior to the game and then away after.  as music students, we knew that we had to either get out or stay put thru the entire games – and sometimes we could hear the stadium noise from the open windows of our practice rooms.
 
but really i am glad for them – really i am
