LSU announces Labor Day neutral-site game against Power 5 foe for 2027 season
LSU has some interesting season-opening games coming up over the next few years. In 2023, the Tigers play Florida State at a neutral-site game in Orlando.
In 2024, the Tigers head to Las Vegas for a neutral-site opener against USC. In 2025, they’ll travel to Clemson in Week 1 before hosting Clemson in Baton Rouge in Week 1 of 2026.
Then, in 2027, the Tigers will head to Houston to play the Cougars at a “neutral-site” game in Houston’s NRG Stadium.
The news was announced on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon. An exact date was not given:

The Cougars will move to the Big 12 before next season, so this is a Power 5 foe for LSU.
How strong will the Houston program be in 2027? We’ll see where things stand going into that 2027 Labor Day showdown.
