LSU 2022 opener / Tech investigation / Census information

The last time LSU played Florida State in football, Odell Beckham was a running back for the Tigers. Both games will be at neutral sites.

The Florida State Seminoles will host the Jacksonville State Gamecocks in 2021 and the Southern Miss Golden Eagles in 2023, the schools announced on Tuesday. As WBRZ-TV reports, the 2022 opener in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome will be on September 4, with the second game on September 3, 2023, at Camping World Stadium. "Florida State has a rich tradition in Louisiana, the home of many former Seminoles including Warrick Dunn and Travis Minor, and all three of our national championship teams had at least one player from Louisiana". The tigers play Texas, the home half of a home-and-home, this season.

"To play a traditional power like Florida State is a challenge that excites our team", LSU coach Ed Orgeron said. "We are thankful to Florida State for the opportunity to put one of the nation's top programs back on our schedule and for giving us the opportunity to showcase our program against the highest level".

The Southern Miss Golden Eagles will travel to take on Florida State in Tallahassee on September 9, 2023.

The Seminoles are 8-2 in the Superdome, including a victory over Virginia Tech in the 2000 Sugar Bowl that earned FSU its second national championship and completed the first wire-to-wire No. 1 season in Associated Press poll history.

Looking closer to the upcoming season, LSu will have two home games to open up the 2020 season.
