Yes, the Tigers are still set to open season in Pasedena

NCAA Football: Louisiana State at Florida Gainesville Sun-USA TODAY NETWORK

The 2021 SEC football was finally released Wednesday afternoon, and Tiger fans still holding on to the hope that they’ll see LSU play in the Rose Bowl can finally exhale.

LSU is still set to open the season on the road against UCLA on the road in Pasadena in the first-ever meeting between the two schools before playing McNeese and Central Michigan at home. The Tigers then open up SEC play on the road against Mississippi State before hosting Auburn for the first SEC home game.

The Tigers then play their two SEC East opponents back to back, traveling to Lexington to play Kentucky before hosting Florida, LSU’s permanent opponent from the East. LSU’s trip to Lexington will be the first for the team since its infamous three-overtime loss in 2007.

As has become tradition, LSU and Alabama is scheduled for the first weekend in November following a bye and the Tigers close out the season against Texas A&M.

Notably, LSU will close out the season with three straight home games in November against Arkansas, ULM, and Texas A&M.
