LSU head coach Ed Orgeron gives a double thumbs up before leading the team down Victory Hill before kickoff between LSU and Utah State, Saturday, October 5, 2019, at LSU's Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, La.

LSU will defend its national title via a 10-game regular season that only features Southeastern Conference foes.

SEC university presidents voted to approve the modified schedule amid coronavirus.

This eliminates LSU's non-conference games, including its marquee home rematch against Texas and its road game against Rice at NRG Stadium, the home of the Houston Texans.

The season will begin for all SEC teams on Sept. 26. The dates of the games have not been released; many will change from the original schedule, according to an SEC Network broadcast on Friday.

Here's a look at LSU's schedule. Dates are yet to be announced.
