BATON ROUGE – Seven home games, including Southeastern Conference contests against Auburn, Florida, Texas A&M and Arkansas in Tiger Stadium, highlight LSU's 2013 football schedule, which was released by the conference office on Thursday.

The 2013 LSU schedule features eight conference games – four at home and four on the road – as well as four non-conference contests beginning with the season-opener against TCU in the Cowboys Classic in Arlington, Texas on Aug. 31.

Other non-conference games for the Tigers in 2013 include the home opener against UAB on Sept. 7, Kent State on Sept. 14 and Furman on Oct. 26. LSU has never faced Kent State and Furman in football, while the UAB game will be the first between the teams since the 2000 season.

The Tigers open SEC play on Sept. 21 against Auburn in Tiger Stadium. LSU hosts Florida on Oct. 12, Texas A&M on Nov. 23 and Arkansas on Nov. 30 to round out the SEC home schedule in 2013. The Texas A&M game will be the Aggies' first visit to Tiger Stadium since 1994.

The Tigers replace South Carolina on the 2013 schedule with Georgia as LSU travels to Athens, on Sept. 28. It will be the first regular season meeting between LSU and Georgia since 2009. LSU also faces Mississippi State (Oct. 5) and Ole Miss (Oct. 19) on the road in 2013.

After an open date on Nov. 2, the Tigers return to Tuscaloosa, Ala., for the first time since the 9-6 overtime victory during the 2011 season on Nov. 9. Another open date follows the Alabama contest on Nov. 16 before the Tigers close out the regular season with back-to-back home games against Texas A&M and Arkansas.

The SEC Championship Game is scheduled for Dec. 7 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
