In a made for TV event that just as easily could have been an email, the SEC released the 2024 football schedules for the new and improved (?) 16-team Southeastern Conference.
We’ve known for a while who LSU will play and knew some of the when. Leading up to Wednesday the SEC tweeted little teasers about the schedule, like LSU heading to A&M on October 12, but now we’ve got the whole slate for the entire conference.

For the third season in a row, LSU will open the Sunday night of Labor Day weekend. For the past two years it’s been a “home and home” with Florida State, now this time around it will be in Las Vegas against legendary the B1G team that is the Trojans of USC.
LSU will officially open Tiger Stadium on September 7 against Nicholls, and one week later will being conference play with a trip to South Carolina.
LSU will come back home to play another iconic B1G school, UCLA, on September 21 and take on South Alabama to close out the month.
We’ll only get one chance to see the Tigers at home in October, as Ole Miss will come to town on October 12. LSU will have the Saturday before off, play the Rebels, and then hit the road for consecutive conference games: @ Arkansas on the 19, and then @ Texas A&M on the 26.
As has been the case for the past decade or so, LSU will have its second bye the week before Alabama. The Tide will come back to Baton Rouge on November 9. While LSU will barely be home in October, it’ll be the opposite in November. The Tigers will go to The Swamp after the Alabama game, and then close out the regular season with back-to-back home games: Vanderbilt and Oklahoma.
