LSU will face UCLA and Arizona State in home-and-home football series that will start in 2021, the school announced on Monday.

LSU will play UCLA in Pasadena, Calif., at the Rose Bowl on Sept. 4, 2021, and UCLA makes the trip to Baton Rogue on Aug. 31, 2024. The 2021 meeting will be the first time the schools have met on the gridiron.

LSU also announced it will play Arizona State starting in 2022. LSU travels to Tempe for a game on Sept. 10, 2022, with the return trip to Baton Rouge scheduled for Sept. 9, 2023.

“It’s our goal to play as attractive a non-conference schedule as possible,” LSU Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe 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.

STAPLES: Northwestern ruling sends clear message: NCAA, it's time to negotiate LSU starts next season against Wisconsin at Reliant Stadium in Houston on Aug. 30.
