BATON ROUGE, Louisiana (Ticker) -- To complete its 12-game schedule, Louisiana State found an opponent it has not faced in 64 years.
The 19th-ranked Tigers step out of the Southeastern Conference on Saturday to host UL-Lafayette in the first meeting between the teams since 1938.
LSU (3-1) has not merely won all 19 games against the Cajuns. It has outscored them by a combined 864-19, an average margin of 45-1.
LSU has not allowed a point in its last nine games with UL-Lafayette and the most lopsided win in school history was a 93-0 victory over the Cajuns in 1936.

LSU is ranked fourth nationally in both total defense (235.0 yards per game) and passing defense (131.2 ypg). The Tigers have held each of their four opponents to fewer than 250 total yards.
