LSU is in search for a non-conference opponent for the 2017 season after moving a scheduled game against Georgia Southern from ’17 to 2019, said associate athletic director Verge Ausberry.

LSU is likely to fill the spot with a Football Championship Subdivision team. The Tigers’ yearly scheduling philosophy for their four non-conference opponents is one major conference team, two mid-major teams and an FCS opponent.

LSU plays Syracuse, Troy and BYU in Houston in 2017. Aside from Georgia Southern, the Tigers only have one none-conference game scheduled for 2019: at Texas.

Georgia Southern replaced LSU with Auburn, according to this release from the school. Georgia Southern and LSU agreed to play the game in July 2010, according to the contract obtained by The Advocate.
