LSU has completed its 2021 non-conference schedule, striking a deal with UL-Monroe for the Warhawks to come to Tiger Stadium, according to a copy of the contract obtained by The Advocate.

ULM will receive $1.4 million guaranteed from LSU for the game. The teams are set to meet Oct. 9, 2021. They have only met three times in football: 2003, 2010 and 2014. LSU won all three by a combined score of 131-7.

LSU will host McNeese State for the 2021 home opener in Tiger Stadium, meeting Sept. 11, 2021, a week after the Tigers open the season at UCLA. LSU will pay McNeese $600,000 for the game, LSU deputy director of athletics Verge Ausberry told The Advocate this past March.

LSU and McNeese met in Tiger Stadium to open the 2015 season. Shortly after that game began, a thunderstorm rolled through Baton Rouge, ultimately canceling the affair. It was the first LSU cancellation in nearly 100 years.
