LSU remained perfect in 2011 on Saturday and the Tigers earned the No. 1 ranking in the initial BCS standings unveiled on Sunday on ESPN.
The BCS standings have determined which two teams meet for the National Championship game since 1998. The billing is the Tigers' third all-time during the regular season, as LSU ranked No. 1 twice in November of 2007 before winning its second BCS title.
The BCS standings are a compilation of the USA Today Coaches' Poll, the Harris Interactive poll and an average of six computer rankings (LSU was No. 3 in the computer average rankings). LSU has the nation's best record in BCS bowl games, 4-0, including two national titles.

Saturday is election day
The race for the District 8 seat in the Louisiana House of Representatives highlights election day this Saturday, March 25.
It is a special election called to fill the seat of Rep. Mike Johnson, who was elected to Congress. The winner will serve out the remainder of his term.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that Louisiana has endured adverse credit rating changes since Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards assumed office, completing a downgrade trifecta last week.
