LSU rounded out its 2019 football schedule with Utah State and canceled a scheduled meeting with Idaho in 2020.

The Tigers and Aggies will meet on Oct. 5, 2019 in Tiger Stadium. LSU will pay Utah State $1.5 million, according to a copy of the game contract obtained by The Advocate and first reported by FBSchedules.com.

The Tigers officially canceled their 2020 game with the Vandals. Idaho is moving down to the Football Championship Subdivision level. That leaves LSU with a hole to fill in 2020. The Tigers currently have games scheduled against Texas, Rice and Nicholls State. 

On LSU's 2019 schedule, Utah State joins Georgia Southern (Aug. 31), at Texas (Sept., 7) and Northwestern State (Sept. 14). The Aggies and Tigers have met twice before (1993 and 2001), with LSU winning both games.
