BATON ROUGE, La. — The Southeastern Conference announced Monday that the LSU vs. Auburn game will be televised on ESPN, and kickoff will be at 6 p.m. CT on Saturday, October 1.

This will be the LSU Tigers’ fifth game of the 2022 season but their first SEC game on the road. The 6 p.m. kickoff will be the team’s fifth consecutive nighttime kickoff. They haven’t had any daytime kickoffs yet.

The last time the Tigers played a night game at Jordan-Hare Stadium in 2016, they blew the lead and lost to the Auburn Tigers 13-18. LSU also took a serious loss at the Jordan-Hare Stadium in 2020, scoring 11-48.

Our partners at NOLA.com report LSU is hoping to avenge their 24-19 loss to Auburn last season in Baton Rouge.

Right now, both teams stand at 2-1.

Ahead of the tiger match, LSU will take on the New Mexico Lobos at home at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, September 24, while Auburn hosts different tigers – the Missouri Tigers – at 11 a.m. that morning.
