LSU is expected to be invited back to the Citrus Bowl on January 1 in Orlando, FL for a second straight year, according to multiple sources. The game will kickoff at noon CT on ABC.

The Tigers have a very good chance at playing either Michigan State or Notre Dame in the game.

LSU was likely headed to the Outback Bowl in Tampa, FL before Mississippi State and South Carolina both lost last week. Many now expect the Citrus Bowl officials to select LSU over the Bulldogs and the Gamecocks since they have first "SEC vs. Big Ten selection" after the CFP bowl selection process. Per The Advocate:

Before Mississippi State and South Carolina lost last weekend, indications were LSU was eying a trip to the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1 in Tampa, Florida. But now that LSU is likely to be the highest-ranked SEC team outside those heading to the CFP semis or New Year’s Six bowls, the school appears eager to make the best bowl trip possible.

“I haven’t heard anything negative from the LSU side about not wanting to be considered for Orlando,” Hogan said.
LSU beat Louisville and Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Lamar Jackson 29-9 last year in the Citrus Bowl.

I know. But on New Years Day, most everyone will be hungover from the night before and probably won’t mind the noon start as much. Breakfast with the Tigers! What could be better?

Everyone (including me and my wife) wants to see the Notre Dame matchup. The Citrus is the highest payout (4.2 million) of the non playoff and big six bowls. A January 1, 12:00 noon start time will have the Tigers showcased to a national audience. Hopefully we come prepared and dominate like last year and have a great offseason and be in the playoffs next year! It’s coming! Geaux Tigers!

You can't spell Citrus Bowl without LSU. It would be Citr Bow. Really, congrats that is a great bowl to attend and a reward for a great season.

We lose almost all of our key players next year and will be even worse off at QB. Not sure why anyone is expecting us to be better

Anytime you can play ND, it's a big deal. Can't wait, I will hopefully be in Tampa for NYE.

ND would be great opponent.

Don't buy your Saints tickets until the morning of the game - Bucs fans suck and you'll get a steal of a deal (game might be meaningless for Saints also)...

It was awesome last year in Orlando and with the Saints playing down the road. This would be awesome

I doubt it will be ND. We just played them a couple years ago.

We owe ND a beat down.

I suppose you need an explanation of what "a couple" means. Hint: a decade =/= a couple.

??? "Music City Bowl featured the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and the LSU Tigers from the SEC. It was one of the final 2014-15 bowl games of the 2014 FBS football season. ... Notre Dame defeated Louisiana State by a final score of 31–28."
