LSU's home-opener against UAB on Sept. 7 will kickoff at 6 p.m. CT and will be televised on ESPNU, the Southeastern Conference announced on Tuesday as part of the league's release of the early season television schedule.

LSU's game against Kent State on Sept. 14 will kickoff at 6 p.m. CT as well and will be carried either by ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU.

The league had previously announced that LSU's season-opener against TCU in the Cowboys Classic in Arlington, Texas on Aug. 31 will start at 8 p.m. CT and will be televised on ESPN.

The only other game on the LSU schedule that a kickoff time has been determined is the Arkansas contest on Friday, Nov. 29 in Tiger Stadium. That game will start at 1:30 p.m. and will be televised on CBS.

Kickoff times and television network designation for the remainder of the schedule will be announced as the season progresses.
