BATON ROUGE — LSU will open up the 2023 season against Florida State in Orlando, and open up its home schedule by playing Grambling State for the first time.
Those contests highlight LSU’s 2023 football schedule which also features Southeastern Conference home games against Arkansas, Auburn, Florida and Texas A&M.
The SEC announced the 2023 schedules for all 14 league teams on Tuesday night on the SEC Network.
SEC opponents coming to Tiger Stadium in 2023 include Arkansas (Sept. 23), Auburn (Oct. 14), Florida (Nov. 11) and Texas A&M (Nov. 25). The September meeting with the Razorbacks will mark the earliest the teams have met in the 67-game history of the series.
In addition to its four SEC home games, LSU will play Grambling for the first time in football (Sept. 9). LSU will also host Army (Oct. 21) and Georgia State (Nov. 18) in Tiger Stadium to round out the home slate.
LSU will face Army for the only the second time and the first since 1931. LSU and Georgia State have never met.
On the road, the Tigers open conference play at Mississippi State (Sept. 16) with other league games coming at Ole Miss (Sept. 30), Missouri (Oct. 7) and then at Alabama (Nov. 4).
LSU and Ole Miss have faced each other during the month of September only four times in the history of the rivalry that dates back to 1894.
LSU closes out the season with three consecutive home contests, a first for the Tigers since 2001 when Middle Tennessee, Arkansas and Auburn all came to Tiger Stadium over the final three weeks of the season.
