LSU-Tulane game set for 11 AM

LSU's game against Tulane in the Louisiana Superdome on Saturday, Sept. 29 will kickoff at 11 a.m. and will be televised to a national audience on ESPN2, Conference USA officials announced on Monday.

It will mark the first time since 1983 that LSU and Tulane will square off on national television. That year, the Tigers posted a 20-7 win over the Green Wave in New Orleans in a game televised by TBS.

It will also mark the earliest start time for an LSU football game since the 2003 Cotton Bowl when the Tigers faced Texas in a 10 a.m. contest in Dallas.

Last year's LSU-Tulane contest from Tiger Stadium was a TigerVision telecast.

Other Southeastern Conference games scheduled for television on Sept. 29 include: Mississippi State at South Carolina at 11:30 a.m. on Lincoln Financial Sports; Alabama against Florida State or Auburn at Florida at 4 p.m. on CBS or 7 p.m. on ESPN.

CBS has once again selected the six-day window for games on Saturday, Sept. 29.
