Agreements with North Carolina State and Georgia Southern already signed, LSU had one-half of its 2017 nonconference schedule locked in. After today, that percentage has jumped to three-quarters.
In a press release, Troy announced that the football team will travel to Baton Rouge, La., on Sept. 30, 2017, for a game against LSU in Tiger Stadium.
The two programs have met two times previously, with the Tigers claiming wins both times: 24-20 in 2004 and 40-31 in 2008. As the school noted in its release, however, the Trojans held leads in the fourth quarter of both games.
In addition to the LSU one-off game, Troy will also commence a home-and-home series with Boise State in 2017.
