Several sources are reporting a possible matchup between the LSU Tigers and the Oregon Ducks at Cowboys Stadium to open the 2011 football season. 2theadvocate.com reported on the possibility of this game last month.
Both LSU and Oregon have open dates on September 3, 2011. The Ducks recently canceled a home-and-home series with Kansas State which opened the door for this opportunity.
Last week, DallasNews.com received confirmation of the negotiations from a source in Oregon’s athletics department.
The Tigers and Ducks have played three times in their history, but haven’t faced off since 1977. LSU leads the series 2-1.
