The kickoff times and TV networks for LSU's week 2 and 3 games for the 2023 season were announced on Wednesday.

The Tigers' first home game of the 2023 slate in week two against Grambling State on Saturday, Sept. 9, will kick off at 6:30 pm CT in Tiger Stadium. The matchup will be streamed live on ESPN+ and SEC Network+.

LSU will open SEC play in week three on the road vs. Mississippi State on Sept. 16 at Davis-Wade Stadium, with kickoff set for 11 am CT on ESPN. Per LSU:

BATON ROUGE –LSU will open its 2023 home slate at night against Grambling State and travel to face Mississippi State at 11 a.m. the following week for the SEC opener, the league office announced Wednesday.

Game times and network designations were announced for the first three weeks of the season. Kickoff times and television plans for the remainder of LSU’s 2023 schedule – as well as the rest of the SEC – will be announced as the season progresses.

For the second year in a row LSU will face a Historically Black College and University (HBCU). The first-ever meeting between the two schools will be streamed live on ESPN+ and SEC Network+. This is the second year in a row that LSU will have a game available only via streaming.

LSU’s conference opener against Mississippi State on Sept. 16 at Davis-Wade Stadium will kick off at 11 a.m. and air on ESPN. Last year, LSU posted a 31-16 win over the Bulldogs in Baton Rouge.

The league had previously announced LSU’s season-opener against Florida State on Sunday, Sept. 3 in the Camping World Kickoff in Orlando, Florida will start at 6:30 p.m. CT and air on ABC.

LSU is coming off a 10-4 mark and the SEC Western Division title in its first season under head coach Brian Kelly. The Tigers capped the season with a 63-7 win over Purdue in the Citrus Bowl in Orlando.

There is no reason an SEC game should be at 11am. The greed behind this conference and TV money is absurd.
