It will be Saturday Night in Death Valley, but it will also be a historic night for the city of Baton Rouge.

Only eight miles separate the two schools, but for the first time ever, LSU and Southern will face each other on the football field in front of a sold-out Tiger Stadium.

Kickoff is set for 6:39 p.m. CT on the SEC Network and the LSU Sports Radio Network.

“As a head football coach, and somebody that’s been in the business as long as I have, I’m really excited about this game because of the historical perspective and how important it is,” said head coach Brian Kelly Monday.

On the heels of a heartbreaking defeat on Sunday against Florida State, the Tigers are already looking ahead and eager to build on the positives. Quarterback Jayden Daniels will serve as a captain for the Tigers, along with BJ Ojulari, Ali Gaye and Mike Jones, representing the offensive side of the ball this week.
