HOUSTON (FOX 26) - For the first time since 1995, Rice and LSU will be squaring off in a football game.
The announcement was made on Thursday afternoon. The Owls will head to Baton Rouge to face LSU on November 17, 2018.
“We have heard from our fans a desire to see us play more traditional opponents out of conference,” said Joe Karlgaard, Rice Director of Athletics, in a press release. “LSU certainly fits that description and when offered an opportunity to rekindle the series, I was excited to be able to make it happen.”
