Two college football juggernauts are reportedly headed towards a two-game series. On Thursday, Aug. 9, college football reporter Brett McMurphy reported that the Florida State Seminoles and LSU Tigers are set to play a two-game series that will be played on neutral sites in the programs’ home states. The series would reportedly take place during the 2022 and 2023 seasons.
