LSU announces 2015 football schedule
BATON ROUGE - Home games against Southeastern Conference rivals Auburn, Arkansas, Texas A&M and Florida highlight the 2015 LSU football schedule.
LSU opens the 2015 season against McNeese State on Sept. 5 in Tiger Stadium in the first of four non-conference games for the Tigers next year. LSU will travel to face Syracuse in the Carrier Dome on Sept. 26 followed by a home game against Eastern Michigan on Oct. 3. Western Kentucky rounds out the non-conference portion of the schedule on Oct. 24 in Tiger Stadium.
LSU's game against Syracuse will be just the third meeting between the teams and the first since the 1989 Hall of Fame Bowl in Tampa. LSU and Syracuse also played in the 1965 Sugar Bowl in New Orleans with the Tigers posting a 13-10 win over the Orange. Syracuse will make the return trip to Baton Rouge in 2017.
