The Tigers will host their cross-town neighbors in the Jaguars in 2022, and the GSU Tigers in 2023.

This will be the first ever meeting between LSU and their two in-state counterparts.

“We are excited to announce our games against Southern and Grambling in the future,” LSU head coach Ed Orgeron added. “We have a great relationship with all universities in our state. It is important to LSU to have a great relationship with all of the universities in our state.”
