LSU and Oklahoma have new dates for their home-and-home series – 22 years after first making the deal.
Oklahoma and LSU are set to play in 2027, at OU, and 2028, in Baton Rouge, athletic director Joe Alleva confirmed with The Advocate. The news was first reported by fbschedules.com.
Oklahoma and LSU were originally scheduled to play in 2018-19, according to a deal made in 2005. The games were postponed last fall after Oklahoma scheduled a home-and-home with UCLA in 2018-2019.
LSU has future home-and-home series scheduled with UCLA (2021-24) and Arizona State (2022-23). The Tigers, according to a report from The Associated Press, are in the final stages of agreeing to open the 2018 season against Miami at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. School officials have said that report is not true.
Under a new Southeastern Conference mandate, LSU must play one major conference school each year. The Tigers will play at Syracuse in 2015 and will host the Orange in 2017. LSU meets Wisconsin at Lambeau Field in 2016. The Tigers do not have major conference teams scheduled for 2018-2020.
According to fbschedules.com, LSU and Oklahoma’ series is now the farthest scheduled series in the future in the nation.
