The LSU Tigers have scheduled a team from the Mountain West Conference for the 2022 college football season.

LSU will play host to the New Mexico Lobos on September 10 of that season.

There is a connection between LSU and New Mexico, as the Lobos hired away Eddie Nunez, the former Deputy Director of Athletics at LSU, to be their new Athletic Director last August.

The contest, which is slated to pay New Mexico $1.6 million, is the first non-conference game of 2022 scheduled for the Tigers.
