College football: LSU will visit Carrier Dome next season


SYRACUSE — Syracuse University will host LSU on Sept. 26, 2015 at the Carrier Dome, the first game of a two-game series between the two schools. The second game in the series will be played on Sept. 9, 2017 at LSU’s Tiger Stadium.

“We are thrilled to enter into this home-and-home agreement with a premiere program like LSU,” Dr. Daryl Gross, SU athletic director, said.

The meeting will be the first regular-season game between the two schools;, however Syracuse and LSU have met in two bowl games — the 1989 Hall of Fame Bowl in which Syracuse won 23-10 and the 1965 Sugar Bowl, won by LSU 13-10.

“It is a great opportunity to match the tradition of our program against the storied tradition of LSU,” SU head coach Scott Shafer said. “As members of the Atlantic Coast Conference we play some of the best teams in the country.”

Syracuse opens the 2014 season against Villanova on Aug. 29.

To celebrate the excitement in the program, Shafer announced today the ‘Coach Shafer Buyout’ for the opener. For every ticket purchased for the Villanova game, Shafer will buy an additional ticket for that fan. The offer includes season tickets already purchased.
