LSU has shown it has no fear playing tough non-conference games in the past and that tradition looks to be continuing as the Tigers will reportedly face Florida State twice in the coming years.
First reported by college football insider Brett McMurphy, LSU and FSU will play in two neutral site games in 2022 and 2023. The first game is set to take place in New Orleans with the final game set to be played in Orlando. While they are both “neutral” site contests, at least this series will be somewhat close to home for each local fan base.
Florida State has won the previous four games in the series and holds an overall record of 7-2 against LSU. The Tigers last win over FSU came in 1982, in a 55-21 game in Baton Rouge. The previous meeting between the two schools took place in 1991, with FSU winning 27-16.
The Tigers have already announced a 2022 non-conference game against New Mexico but LSU currently does not have any 2023 non-conference games on the schedule at this time. LSU does have a home-and-home series with Texas coming up in 2019 and 2020, a home-and-home with UCLA from 2021 and 2024 as well as a home-and-home with Oklahoma in 2027 and 2028.
