Before the season, we kindly asked you to participate in SB Nation’s FanPulse weekly rankings. This is basically a poll voted on by you, the fans, instead of stuffy old sportswriters, which allows for more insight into how the common fan feels about the current season.

Football Confidence

As one might imagine, confidence is sitting at 100% after the Tigers defeated Alabama for the first time since 2011. To date, confidence has not dipped below 93.9 among you, LSU fans.

Top 25
  • Ohio State and Clemson slide up to replace Alabama, who falls all the way to...fourth.
  • Minnesota nearly cuts their ranking in half, jumping from 13th to 7th.
  • Meanwhile, Penn State falls from 5th to 9th.
  • Oklahoma, who was a two-point conversion away from dropping their second game of the year to Iowa State, vacates their spot for the surging Golden Gophers.
  • Baylor also takes a big step forward following their triple overtime victory over TCU, moving from 10th to 6th.
  • Team blogs not voting LSU #1: Michigan State, Nebraska, and Ohio State. Notice a theme?

According to SB Nation readers, Joe Burrow is the runaway favorite to take home the Heisman Trophy, with 82.2% of the vote.

How wild is that? An LSU quarterback is a Heisman favorite.


LSU fans reported in with 95.6% confidence in the basketball after their season opener against Bowling Green, down from 97.1% before tipoff. I’m sure this is just fun with small sample sizes.
