The LSU Tigers have added a home game vs. New Mexico to the 2022 non-conference schedule, according to FBSchedules.com.

The Tigers will pay the Lobos $1.6 million for the game, which is scheduled for Sept. 10, 2022.

LSU will host New Mexico at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge on Sept. 10, 2022. The Tigers will pay the Lobos a $1.6 million guarantee for the game, according to a copy of the contract obtained from Louisiana State University via a state public records request.

The 2022 contest between LSU and New Mexico will be their first-ever meeting on the gridiron.

New Mexico is the first scheduled non-conference opponent for LSU for the 2022 season. The Tigers were previously slated to play at Arizona State in 2022, but that game was moved to 2026.

It's about time. We've scheduled New Mexico State like five times since 1996. I've always wondered, why not just New Mexico?

Good grief, how many years has ASU been backing out now? I think it was 2005 and 2006 we were supposed to have a 2 game contract. It seems they back out every time a game has been agreed upon

Az St should do the right thing and go to LSU since the Tigers were displaced by the hurricane in '05. LINK

Still don’t really understand the negotiation process to have to drop that much money on these teams to play us from out of state. Surely we can pay less to a local Louisiana school and have a chance of actually filling the stand making more money in the end.

I wonder how badly our team will beat the Lobos with our head coach in his fourth year.
