The long-awaited, now-potential Top 10 contest between LSU and Texas at Darrell K. Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium will be played under the lights in front of a national audience.
ESPN announced Wednesday morning that the Tigers and Longhorns will kick off at 6:30 p.m. on ABC as part of the network’s Saturday Night football package.
The game, slated for Sept. 7, will feature two teams who enter the 2019 season with high expectations after overachieving and earning wins in New Year Six bowl games in 2018.
LSU finished last season with a 10-3 record and capped things off with a 40-32 victory against undefeated UCF in the Fiesta Bowl.
Texas went 10-4 last year with a victory against Oklahoma in the Red River shootout, earning a runner up spot in the Big 12 and defeating Georgia 28-21 in the Sugar Bowl.
