LSU isn’t scared to play you, Pac-12.

The Tigers announced today they would have a home-and-home series with the Arizona State Sun Devils and UCLA Bruins.

LSU will travel to UCLA on September 4, 2021, and the Bruins will travel to Baton Rouge on August 31, 2024. The Tigers will play Arizona State in back-to-back years starting in 2022. LSU will travel to Tempe on September 10, 2022, and the Sun Devils will come to Death Valley on September 9, 2023.

“It’s our goal to play as an attractive non-conference schedule as possible,” Alleva said in a school release. “Getting teams to agree to a home-and-home series is very difficult but we will continue to make every attempt to bring a BCS-conference caliber opponent to Tiger Stadium.

“Scheduling is very difficult and done many years in advance. It’s important that you put together a schedule that prepares your team for the rigorous SEC schedule but also one that has balance so that your team is ready both mentally and physically for the conference slate. I think the addition of these teams to our future schedules gives us that.”

Although you, reader, will be much older in eight years, these are two attractive games for the Tigers.

  • Hopefully these will still be attractive games when the time comes. West Virginia was also a pretty attractive game when Bama originally scheduled them

  • LSU and Missouri deserve a lot of credit for showing the SEC strength directly to media and fans of the PAC. Same is true for Alabama and Missouri playing thew Big 10. Same for South Carolina with the ACC. Georgia and Florida may not be winning 100% of their game against major conferences but they win most and this is good for the SEC as well. I don’t mean to leave anyone out here, ie Mississippi beating Texas, Missouri beating Oklahoma State.
