Week 8 Power Rankings: LSU

The Tigers come in at No. 21 this week after previously being unranked. The new rank comes after LSU's 40-24 win over Ole Miss on Saturday.

Mark Schlabach ESPN Senior Writer 

Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson will miss the remainder of the season with a torn knee ligament, a school official told ESPN's Chris Low on Sunday morning. Patterson tore the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during Saturday night's 40-24 loss to LSU, the source said. JUCO transfer Jordan Ta'amu completed 7 of 11 passes for 78 yards against LSU and will probably start next week's game against Arkansas (12 p.m. ET, SEC Network).

X factor for LSU down the stretch: WR D.J. Chark

As QB Danny Etling's main target, and with the ability to change field position in a second in the return game, Chark has a chance to be the Tigers' most important utility guy down the stretch.

Has Coach O begun his turnaround?

One win over a ranked team does not make a season or get LSU closer to winning the SEC. But for Ed Orgeron, already embattled in Baton Rouge, the past two weeks have perhaps helped him turn a corner.
