The LSU Tigers have added the Jacksonville State Gamecocks to their 2015 football schedule, JSU has announced. The game will be played at Tiger Stadium on September 5, 2015.
This will be the first meeting between the two schools. Jacksonville State is a member of the Ohio Valley Conference in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS).
In recent years, Jacksonville State has faced Florida State, Georgia Tech, Kansas, Memphis and Mississippi State. They play Ole Miss this season and have future games scheduled against Auburn, Florida, Kentucky and Michigan State.
The Gamecocks are the second non-conference game for the LSU Tigers in 2015. Arizona State visits Tiger Stadium on September 12.
Also, a birthday reminder for Tiger fans. Mike VI turns 5 on Friday.
