As LSU Football opens camp, the Tigers are ranked 24th in the preseason USA Today/Amway Coaches Poll released this week.
It is the 18th year in a row LSU has made the Coaches' preseason Top 25, but it's also the lowest ranking for the Purple and Gold over that time.
The Tigers report for camp Friday and begin Fall practice on Saturday.
The season begins Sunday, September 2nd against Miami in the AdvoCare Classic held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
The Hurricanes are ranked 8th in the preseason Coaches Poll. Alabama is on top of the list.
NOTE: An earlier version of this story incorrectly listed Miami's ranking as 4th. We regret the error.
