The brewing rivalry between LSU and Ole Miss will have added drama this season – it’s on homecoming.
LSU announced Monday morning that its Oct. 25 game against Ole Miss will be homecoming. The Tigers have won 12 straight homecoming games, dating back to a 2000 loss to UAB.
For just the second time since 1995, LSU will host a Southeastern Conference team on homecoming weekend. The Tigers played Mississippi State on homecoming in 2012.
LSU leads the series with Ole Miss 58-40-4. The teams have split the last six meetings, including Ole Miss’ 27-24 win in Oxford last season.
The school also announced that the Sept. 20 game against Mississippi State is the “Gold Game.”
