LSU falls two spots in coaches' poll

LSU's series loss to Kentucky during the weekend doesn't appear to have soured anyone's opinion of the Tigers.

The most recent edition of the USA Today/ESPN Top 25 coaches' poll, released Monday, saw LSU (32-9) fall just two spots to No. 6 after dropping two of three games to the No. 3 Wildcats.

Two of the Tigers' four remaining SEC opponents climbed up the polls while LSU fell. South Carolina jumped three spots to No. 5 after a three-game sweep of Auburn. Ole Miss also jumped three spots to No. 19 after a series win against No. 17 Arkansas. LSU travels to face the Rebels on May 4, while the series with the Gamecocks will conclude the regular season from May 17-19.

No. 2 Florida took two of three games from Georgia, but that wasn't enough to help the Gators hold on to the top spot. Florida was instead replaced at No. 1 by in-state rival Florida State.

All told, the poll features six SEC teams in the top 25, with four of those ranking in the top 10.
