It’s official: It will be a primetime matchup in Austin (Tx.).

As if this game could get any bigger, LSU’s showdown with Texas will be a 6:30 p.m. kickoff on ABC. Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreet and Maria Taylor will be on the call. The Tigers and Longhorns will meet for the first time since 2002’s Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

LSU opens the 2019 season vs. Georgia Southern, then we will learn a whole lot about this team when they travel to Austin for a primetime matchup vs. Texas.

I’d expect College Gameday to be in town for this one, as well.
