LSU, Florida State Agree To Neutral Site Series

  • Pin It

Details for this all-time series has just now come out, and it involves LSU and Florida State. Both will meet consecutively, but only on neutral site games. They will most likely open up in New Orleans in 2022 and Orlando in 2023. Orlando hosts the Camping World Kickoff Classic through 2019 and could possibly expand to 2023 unless they are not able to fill spot between now and then. 2017 was the only year that Camping World did not sponsor a classic, so this is most likely plausible.

As far as New Orleans is concerned, Allstate for as long as they continue to sponsor the Sugar Bowl, could have a hand in putting together a new matchup to kickoff the college football season. New Orleans is one of a few major cities in college football overall to not host any kind of classic related to their respected bowl, but that perspective could change before 2022 is upon us. Since this story had just come out as early as Thursday morning, dates were not announced as of yet.

Both teams have met only seven times, and the Seminoles own the series 5-2 winning the last four. All games were played at Baton Rouge except for the 1968 Peach Bowl in Atlanta and in Tallahassee in 1990. Although LSU is 22-2 against the ACC, Florida State did not join the conference until 1992 as they were independent for 40 years until then. If you wanted to add those games into the system as ACC, LSU would actually be 24-9 technically so unofficially you could do that.

If adding a permanent New Orleans classic is imminent, it could help expand the huge debate and rivalry between the SEC and the ACC, althought the site is between SEC and Big XII country. It could be a switchout between the ACC and Big XII, and if this is probable could be huge for all three.
