Washington and Louisiana State have agreed to a two-game football series.
The 2007-national-champion Tigers will visit Husky Stadium for the season opener on Sept. 5, 2009. The Huskies will make their visit to Tiger Stadium -- the famed Death Valley of Baton Rouge -- on Sept. 29, 2012.
Despite long histories, including national championships for each, the schools have met only once before, on Sept. 24, 1983, in Baton Rouge, when LSU pounded the ninth-ranked Huskies, 40-14.
Washington is 2-5 all-time against current members of the Southeastern Conference, and hasn't played an SEC school since beating Florida, 34-7, in the 1989 Freedom Bowl.
Never miss a local story.
The game completes the Huskies' 2009 schedule, which also includes out-of-conference opponents Idaho andNotre Dame, in addition to the nine annual Pacific-10 Conference games. The 2009 home schedule features LSU, Idaho, USC, Oregon, Arizona, California and Washington State.
