UCLA & LSU Announce Future Home-and-Home Football Series

Maybe by the time we play LSU, we'll have real UCLA shoulder stripes too! - Stacy Revere

Earlier today, UCLA and LSU announced that the two programs have scheduled a non-conference home-and-home football series, with the Tigers coming to the Rose Bowl in 2021 and the Bruins making the return trip to Death Valley in 2024. From the UCLA official press release:

The Bruins will open the 2021 season at the Rose Bowl against the Tigers on Sept. 4 and then will kick off the 2024 season in Baton Rouge on Aug. 31. These will be the first-ever scheduled matchups between the two schools. UCLA is 13-12-3 all-time against SEC programs, winning its most recent SEC contest against Tennessee, 19-15, in Knoxville in 2009.

"In LSU, a perennial SEC power, we are pleased to add yet another marquee opponent to our future schedule," said Guerrero. "With such upcoming non-conference games taking us around the country to places like Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma and Michigan, we're able to nationally showcase UCLA Football while strengthening our resume come playoff season."

We don't give Chianti Dan much credit around here (since he's an incompetent buffoon), but this is a smart move, and it's nice that we're actually getting LSU to come to the Rose Bowl instead of us playing another ill-conceived "neutral" site game in a venue like Houston. Obviously, 2021 and 2024 are a long way off, and there's no telling what either program will look like by then, but if LSU remains the SEC power we know, this will be a great game (unless we've returned to being a Dorrellian dumpster fire joke again).
