The Tigers finish the regular season with home games against Alabama on November 11 and Ole Miss on November 18 prior to their traditional season finale against Arkansas in Little Rock.
The LSU-Arkansas game has been played on the Friday after Thanksgiving since 1996, but it has not yet been determined if the game will be played on Friday, November 24, or Saturday, November 25. The day and time of the game will be determined by the television networks that are contracted with the Southeastern Conference.
Prior to the move of the Auburn game to September 16, LSU's schedule featured five consecutive home games to open the season, and no home games between October 14 and November 11. The move of the Auburn game balances LSU's schedule, providing LSU with no more than two home games in a row and no back-to-back road games.
