LSU has added to its 2025 schedule, and announced that a familiar foe, Louisiana Tech, would be an opponent.

It will be the home opener that season, LSU announced on Friday.

LSU opens the 2025 season at Clemson on Aug. 30 followed by the Louisiana Tech contest in Tiger Stadium on Sept. 6. The other non-conference game currently on LSU’s 2025 schedule is a Nov. 22 matchup against Western Kentucky in Tiger Stadium.

The Tigers are 19-1 all-time against Louisiana Tech with the most recent contest coming in 2018, a 38-21 LSU win in Baton Rouge.

The Bulldogs last year hired Texas Tech offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie as its football coach. Cumbie spent this past season as Texas Tech’s offensive coordinator and went 1-3 as interim head coach following the firing of Matt Wells in late October.

Cumbie takes over at Louisiana Tech for Skip Holtz, who announced last year that he would step down following the Bulldogs’ season finale against Rice.

Louisiana Tech finished 3-9 last season, but Holtz had a good run, and went 64-50 with the Bulldogs in 9 seasons, including 6-1 in bowl games.

Cumbie’s playing career was as a quarterback at Texas Tech from 2001 to 2004, becoming a starter his senior season and passing for 4,742 yards and 32 touchdowns. He spent 5 years playing professionally in arena football and also was a practice squad player for the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens before starting his college coaching career as a graduate assistant at Texas Tech in 2009.
