Texas will be the biggest game on LSU’s schedule

It’s May 14 and we’re already talkin’ football. But who gives a damn, right?
As we look ahead to LSU’s 2019-2020 schedule, it’s pretty clear which game will be most important. The Tigers’ trip to Austin vs. Texas will most likely be a Top 10 matchup and if LSU can sneak out with a W, it should be smooth sailing until mid-October.
What we’re trying to say: A win vs. Texas would be massive. And, beating Tom Herman would be awesome, too.
Not only will LSU will start the season 5-0 if they can make it out of Austin, but all the games they had trouble with on the road last season, will all be home games this season. Florida, Auburn, Texas A&M all have to travel to Baton Rouge, giving LSU an advantage in those games as well. The 2019 season is setting up really nicely for LSU and it may feel like a lot of pressure, but that Texas game will likely be the difference between a “good” season and a College Football Playoff type season.
The home schedule is not nearly as flashy as last season, but it does have a few intriguing games. For one, it feels like Florida hasn’t been to Baton Rouge in a decade, so that should certainly be a sell out. But also, having the Aggies come to our house after what happened last year will make for a rowdy crowd in Tiger Stadium.
Football season … come quicker, please.
