LSU finalized its non-conference schedule for 2020 after finalizing a deal to host UTSA to open the season on Sept. 5.
According to FBSchedules, it will be the first-ever meeting between the Tigers and the Road Runners. UTSA coach Frank Wilson was an LSU assistant from 2010-2015.
LSU will pay UTSA $1.4 million for the game, which will likely serve as a tune-up game for the Tigers’ showdown with Texas the following week.
LSU has all of its non-conference games scheduled for 2020, and they are all teams from Texas. Aside from UTSA and Texas, the Tigers will face Rice at NRG Stadium in Houston and Nicholls State.
The Tigers open the 2017 season with BYU, and they will play Miami (FL) to start the 2018 season. They open the 2019 season with Georgia Southern, and they have two future season openers scheduled with UCLA.
