Back in 2014, it was announced that the LSU Tigers and the Miami Hurricanes would meet in the 2018 AdvoCare Classic at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
The game was set for Saturday, Sept. 1. However, ESPN announced today that the game has been moved to Sunday, Sept. 2 and it will be televised by ABC at 7:30pm ET/6:30pm CT.
LSU and Miami last met in the 2005 Peach Bowl, a game that LSU dominated 40-3. The two schools haven’t met in the regular season since a 1988 contest in Baton Rouge. The Tigers lead the overall series 9-3.
The LSU-Miami game in 2018 will mark the the 10th anniversary of the annual AdvoCare Classic. LSU has appeared in the AdvoCare Classic twice, topping Oregon 40-27 in 2011 and TCU 37-27 in 2016.
Miami will be making their first appearance in the AdvoCare Classic.
LSU-Miami is one of seven season-opening, neutral-site games next season. Others include Alabama-Louisville, Auburn-Washington, Colorado-Colorado State, Maryland-Texas, Ole Miss-Texas Tech, and Tennessee-West Virginia.
