WATCH LIVE: Lunch with Coach Orgeron 

BATON ROUGE – LSU moved up to number 14 in the Amway Coaches Top 25 Poll and number 15 in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll as the Tigers prepare to face Alabama's Crimson Tide. 

LSU moved up five spots in the coaches poll and four spots in the AP poll after the team's open date. The team sits as one of five SEC teams in the top 15 of each poll.

The improved rankings are just ahead on this weekend's anticipated match up between the Tigers and Alabama's Crimson Tide. The game is set for Saturday, Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. in Tiger Stadium.

Alabama is ranked number one in both polls as last week was also an open date for the Crimson Tide. WBRZ will live stream Lunch with Coach Orgeron on Facebook as he gives a preview of the LSU-Alabama game.
