Fans will get to see the Tigers battle it out at Skip Bertman Field against Auburn, Missouri, Georgia and Ole Miss in their respective order. 

LSU will be on the road for big games against Florida, Mississippi State, Arkansas, Alabama and Vanderbilt. Specific game times will be determined once television schedules and travel arrangements are finalized. SEC game dates are subject to change depending on the broadcasting schedule.
