LSU’s game against New Mexico State on Sept. 27 will kick off at 6:30 p.m. and be broadcast on SEC Network, the Southeastern Conference announced Monday.

The Tigers will open a seven-game home season in newly expanded Tiger Stadium with four straight night games.

No. 8 LSU (3-0) hosted Sam Houston State and Louisiana-Monroe in night kicks the last two weeks. The Tigers open SEC play this Saturday with a 6 p.m. kickoff against Mississippi State (3-0).

LSU hasn’t played a day game yet this season, opening the year with a primetime kickoff time in a 28-24 win over Wisconsin in Houston.
