If you are a fan of college football, it’s time to get excited. Not only is the start of the regular season just around the corner, but the Clemson Tigers and LSU Tigers have agreed to face off in a future home-and-home series that will mark the first regular season meeting between the two squads.
Clemson and LSU announced the series on Wednesday, Aug. 15.
“We have put an emphasis on bringing Power 5 teams outside of the Southeastern Conference to Tiger Stadium as often as we can,” LSU Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva said. “It’s what we want and most importantly it’s what our fans want.”
The series will kickoff at Clemson in 2025, before heading to Baton Rouge in 2026.
“The series against LSU continues the philosophy we have had at Clemson for many years of looking to add another Power 5 opponent to our schedule outside of our annual rivalry game with the University of South Carolina,” Director of Athletics Dan Radakovich said. “We are excited about playing a school with LSU’s rich football tradition. We know our fans will enjoy visiting Baton Rouge, and we know they will provide our renowned Clemson hospitality to the fans from LSU.”
The two teams previously met in the Sugar Bowl back in 1959, the 1996 Peach Bowl, and 2012 Chick-Fil-A Bowl.
LSU leads the all-time series, 2-1.
