The No. 3-seeded LSU Tigers (26-6) open up the NCAA Tournament vs. the No. 14-seed Yale Bulldogs (22-7) on Thursday at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, FL.

LSU is currently 7-point favorite and the over/under is set at 156.5.

Tipoff is set for 11:40 a.m. CT and the game will be televised on truTV with Ian Eagle, Jim Spanarkel and Jamie Erdahl on the call. Per

This will be the Tigers’ 22nd NCAA Tournament appearance and first since 2015. It is LSU’s highest seeding since the Tigers were seeded first in a 1981 region of the NCAA Tournament. LSU is 24-24 in its previous 21 appearances. LSU is 11-10 in their first game appearances all-time.

The Jacksonville Arena site has special meaning to LSU as this was the site of LSU’s first and second round games in 2006 when LSU advanced all the way to the NCAA Final Four. That year LSU rallied in the second half to defeat Iona in the second half and Darrel Mitchell hit a three-pointer in the final 10 seconds to defeat Texas A&M in the second round. Read more.
