The LSU Tigers and the Oregon Ducks will open the 2011 football season at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, LSU has announced.
The game will be played the evening of September 3, 2011 and will be televised nationally by ABC or ESPN.
The Tigers and Ducks have played three times in their history, but haven’t faced off since 1977. LSU leads the series 2-1.
LSU’s 2011 non-conference schedule is now complete with games against Oregon (09/03), Northwestern State (09/10), at West Virginia (09/24) and home against Western Kentucky (11/12).
The Ducks will play LSU (09/03) and will host Nevada (09/10). Oregon is slated to play at Utah on September 17, but the game may be changed to a Pac-10 game or moved due to the recent conference realignment.
