LSU, Clemson Set Home And Home Series

  • Pin It

There are two teams called Tigers and both have places called Death Valley, and both will be meeting each other in the regular season for the time in history. LSU and Clemson have agreed to a home and home series starting with Clemson hosting LSU in 2025 and LSU returning the favor in 2026. The last time LSU faced an ACC team at home was in 2017 when they shared a home and home series with Syracuse, winning both meetings at Baton Rouge and the Carrier Dome.

The first regular season meeting between LSU and Clemson will be the fourth and fifth overall. Both have met three times in the postseason, twice in the Peach Bowl and once in the Sugar Bowl, with Clemson winning the last meeting. LSU is said to be setting up a line of hosting Power Five teams at home rather than at a neutral site, and with the exception of 2022 and 2023, have been able to do so. Texas is to visit in 2020, UCLA in 2024, Oklahoma in 2028 and Arizona State in 2029.

LSU holds an impressive record against the ACC, which include new, old and former members. The one ACC team LSU has faced the most is North Carolina playing seven times. Since losing the first contest at Chapel Hill in 1949, they won six in a row against the Tar Heels leading up to 2010. South Carolina was once a member of the ACC from 1953 to 1970 before going independent until 1991. LSU won all contests up to that point and overall as an SEC member, leads the series 18-2-1.

For any major team visiting their Death Valley, it will most likely be under the lights as they rarely play home games during the day now. But on the day that Clemson visits the other Death Valley all the way further south, who knows what the outcome will turn out to be.
