At Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, the Tigers will host Grambling State, Arkansas, Auburn, Army, Florida, Georgia State, and Texas A&M. That's seven home games for the 2023 Tigers season.

Here is LSU's complete 2023 football schedule

Looks like the toughest part of the schedule leans toward late in the season as LSU faces Texas A&M at home, and is on the road against Auburn and Alabama, both tough, long-time rivals.

Last year, the Tigers finished 10-4 overall, finishing 6-2 in SEC play with their only conference losses coming against Texas A&M and Tennessee.
