“In LSU, a perennial SEC power, we are pleased to add yet another marquee opponent to our future schedule,” UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said in a statement. “With such upcoming nonconference games taking us around the country to places like Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma and Michigan, we’re able to nationally showcase UCLA football while strengthening our resume come playoff season.”
