LSU and Syracuse have confirmed that they will play a home-and-home series in 2015 and 2017.

The first game will be at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse on September 26th, 2015, and the return game will be at Tiger Stadium on September 9th, 2017.

“We are thrilled to enter into this home-and-home agreement with a premiere program like LSU. Student-athletes come to Syracuse to play on the biggest stage possible, and this gives our coaches and young men the chance to battle one of the standard-bearers of the SEC on our home turf,” said ‘Cuse AD Daryl Gross.

Syracuse finished 7-6 (4-4) in their first season in the ACC in 2013.

LSU and Syracuse have played two games against each other in the schools’ history. The current series stands at 1-1. The first game was in 1964 (LSU won 13-10) and the second game was in 1988 (Syracuse won 23-10).

BOTTOM LINE: All power to Syracuse for scheduling a big-time SEC opponent. Now, can LSU schedule a big-time college football opponent in another home-and-home series?
