Tennessee To Avoid Tiger Stadium At Night, Vols To Play At LSU At Noon On Oct. 8

The No. 8 Tennessee Vols will not have to worry about Tiger Stadium’s haunted history – and often myth – for opponents.

The Vols (4-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference), who are open this week after beating Florida on Saturday, will play LSU (3-1, 1-0 SEC) at noon eastern time Oct. 8 in Baton Rouge, the SEC office announced Monday. The game is on ESPN. The Tigers play at Auburn on Saturday (7 p.m., ESPN).

Tennessee did win its last night game in Tiger Stadium – 30-27 in overtime in 2005 and leads the series in Baton Rouge, 8-4-2. LSU has defeated Tennessee five straight, though, in 2006 in Knoxville, 2007 in the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta, 2010 in Baton Rouge in the day time and 2011 and 2017 in Knoxville.
