ARLINGTON, TX - LSU and Miami will open the 2018 season at the $1.2 billion home of the Dallas Cowboys.

The 10th contest in the season-opening Cowboys Classic will be the first regular-season meeting between the schools since 1988. The Labor Day weekend date for the game is Sept. 1, 2018.

The Tigers and Hurricanes met most recently in the 2005 Chick-fil-A Bowl, won by LSU 40-3. Miami won at LSU 44-3 in the last regular-season meeting.

LSU is 3-0 at the home of the Cowboys, twice winning the season-opening event and beating Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl to finish the 2010 season.

Miami has yet to play in the 80,000-seat stadium that will be the site of the first championship game in the new College Football Playoff this season.
