LSU running back Tyrion Davis-Price (3) breaks through the line for a good gain and first down as Mississippi State safety Fred Peters (38) gives chase during the first half at Davis Wade Stadium Saturday Sept. 25, 2021, in Starkville, Miss.

The SEC announced on Monday that the Oct. 9 LSU-Kentucky contest is scheduled for a 6:30 p.m. CST kickoff on the SEC Network. 

The game will be LSU's third road contest of the season. The Tigers are currently 1-1 on the road. 

Kentucky is 4-0 and 2-0 in the SEC following last week's 16-10 victory over South Carolina. The Wildcats will make the tough trip to Florida this Saturday for a 5 p.m. kickoff in Gainesville. 

The Tigers (3-1, 1-0) are scheduled to host Auburn (3-1) at 8 p.m. this Saturday in a crucial conference battle after beating Mississippi State 28-25 in Starkville last week. 

LSU is unranked, but it received 24 votes in the AP Top 25 following the win at MSU.
