LSU will host Idaho in 2020 and will pay the Vandals $1.4 million for the game, associate athletic director Verge Ausberry confirmed Monday.

FBSchedules.com first reported the news based off of a public records request.

The Tigers will host the Vandals on Nov. 21, 2020 – just the third meeting between the two programs.  The Tigers beat Idaho 53-20 in 1998 and 63-14 in 2012.

Idaho, a member of the Sun Belt Conference, has played in two bowl games since joining FBS in 1996. The Vandals become LSU’s second non-conference opponent for 2020, joining Texas. The Longhorns play at Tiger Stadium on Sept. 12, 2020.

FBSchedules.com also reported that LSU has moved its game against Georgia Southern from 2017 to 2019.

The Tigers have completed their non-conference schedules through 2018. LSU also knows what SEC opponents it will get for the next several seasons, announced by the league last year.
