LSU football vs. UCLA football
Overall record: 0-1
First meeting: Sep. 4, 2021
Last meeting: Sep. 4, 2021
Last score: 38-27
For many LSU football fans, the Week 1 loss to UCLA was a sign that the Ed Orgeron era in Baton Rouge was beginning a freefall.
UCLA defeated the No. 16 Tigers 38-27 in a nationally televised game that was a massive letdown for the LSU faithful. Tigers quarterback Max Johnson was solid, throwing for 330 yards and three touchdowns. However, LSU failed to muster a ground game and could not control the clock.
The Tigers’ defense surrendered 210 rushing and 260 passing yards. Moreover, LSU football gave up numerous chunk plays while propping up Dorian Thompson-Robinson in front of the Pasadena crowd.
Losing to UCLA in 2021 still bothers LSU football fans to their core. But the chance at revenge comes soon.
The 2021 contest in Los Angeles was the first leg of a ‘home-and-home’ agreement with the Bruins. UCLA travels to Baton Rouge on September 21, 2024, for the 2nd half of their pact with LSU.
Suffice it to say; we expect the list of teams LSU football has never beaten to get smaller after the 2024 season.
