LSU football has agreed with South Alabama to play a non-conference game Sept. 28, 2024, in Baton Rouge.
South Alabama announced the agreement Wednesday (June 13), and an LSU source confirmed the scheduled game.
The two teams were scheduled to play Nov. 19, 2016, before LSU canceled in order to reschedule a game against Florida for that day because of Hurricane Matthew. It will be the first meeting between the two programs.
This is the third LSU game scheduled for 2024, joining UCLA on Aug. 31 and Rice on Sept. 7.
"It will be great to play a team that is perennially in the top 10-15 in the country, one that is an SEC power and has been among the best in the region for the longest time," South Alabama coach Steve Campbell said in a press release. "It also gives us an opportunity to play a big game in an area that we recruit. It's always fun to play in those environments, that's why you sign up to come to South Alabama, to play in big games like that."
