Some notes from LSU’s official release:

LSU will host Georgia in Tiger Stadium for the first time since 2008. LSU is 5-5-1 all-time against the Bulldogs in Tiger Stadium, which includes a 52-38 Georgia win in 2008.

LSU will face Miami (Fla.) in the regular season for the first time since 1988 when the Hurricanes beat the Tigers, 44-3, in Baton Rouge. LSU head coach Ed Orgeron was on the Miami staff for that 1988 game. LSU beat Miami (Fla.), 40-3, the last time the teams met, which came in the 2005 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta.

LSU and Rice meet for the time since 1995, when the Tigers posted a 52-7 win over the Owls for Homecoming in Tiger Stadium.

LSU plays Southeastern Louisiana for just the second time. The only other meeting between the schools located just 47 miles apart came in 1949 when LSU won 48-7 in Tiger Stadium.
