Notes on LSU’s 2018 Schedule

  • LSU will host Georgia in Tiger Stadium for the first time since 2008. LSU is 5-5-1 all-time against the Bulldogs in Tiger Stadium, which includes a 52-38 Georgia win in 2008.


  • LSU will face Miami (Fla.) in the regular season for the first time since 1988 when the Hurricanes beat the Tigers, 44-3, in Baton Rouge. LSU head coach Ed Orgeron was on the Miami staff for that 1988 game. LSU beat Miami (Fla.), 40-3, the last time the teams met, which came in the 2005 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta.


  • LSU and Rice meet for the time since 1995, when the Tigers posted a 52-7 win over the Owls for Homecoming in Tiger Stadium.


  • LSU plays Southeastern Louisiana for just the second time. The only other meeting between the schools located just 47 miles apart came in 1949 when LSU won 48-7 in Tiger Stadium.
