LSU announced future home-and-home series with both Arizona State and UCLA on Monday. The Tigers will travel to play UCLA in Pasadena on Sept. 4, 2021, while the Bruins will visit Tiger Stadium three years later on Aug. 31. Meanwhile, LSU is set to face Arizona State in Tempe on Sept. 10, 2022, while the Sun Devils will make their way to Baton Rouge on Sept. 9, 2023.

In a statement, Tigers athletic director Joe Alleva said that LSU wanted to build a challenging schedule outside of its regular SEC slate.

“It’s our goal to play as an attractive non-conference schedule as possible,” Alleva said. “Getting teams to agree to a home-and-home series is very difficult but we will continue to make every attempt to bring a BCS-conference caliber opponent to Tiger Stadium.

“Scheduling is very difficult and done many years in advance. It’s important that you put together a schedule that prepares your team for the rigorous SEC schedule but also one that has balance so that your team is ready both mentally and physically for the conference slate. I think the addition of these teams to our future schedules gives us that.”

If this is a sign of how schedules will be made by all teams in the College Football Playoff era, fans should be in for some very compelling nonconference matchups.
