History[edit]

From 1923 to 1930, every game was played in the state of Mississippi, and LSU hosted every game from 1934 to 1957. In total, only three games in the series were played outside of Baton Rouge, Louisiana from 1934 to 1970.[2]

When the SEC expanded in 1992, the matchup with LSU and Mississippi State was not played in November like it had since 1947 and has only been played once in the month of November since.

LSU has dominated most of the series since 1985 losing only four games with the most current loss in 2014, when the then-unranked Bulldogs defeated #8 LSU in Baton Rouge 34–29.[3]
