LSU’s final non-conference game of the season will kickoff at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday Oct. 24. A home matchup against Western Kentucky serves as a tune-up opportunity for the Tigers before the bye week. LSU will play Alabama on the road the following week.
The Hilltoppers won’t be a cupcake. Western Kentucky is 5-1 and knocked off Vanderbilt in its season opener, 14-12. Western Kentucky’s lone loss came to Big Ten foe Indiana by a score of 38-35.
This will be the second time the Tigers and Hilltoppers will play each other. LSU destroyed Western Kentucky 42-9 in the first ever matchup between the schools in 2011.
