November 19th was reportedly a date that was being considered to reschedule the LSU at Florida game. Florida would move its game with Presbyterian. LSU would either move its game with South Alabama or buyout the Jaguars.

Monday, LSU director of athletics Joe Alleva flatly denied those reports, saying LSU’s November 19th home game against South Alabama will be played.

LSU head coach Ed Orgeron stayed clear of the scheduling controversy. The game at Florida last Saturday was postponed as Hurricane Matthew approached the Atlantic coast of Florida.

LSU will host Southern Mississippi Saturday at 6:30 pm . Orgeron said running back Leonard Fournette, who has missed two games with an ankle injury, and would have missed a third at Florida, is "questionable" for Saturday night's game.

LSU's October 22nd home game against Ole Miss will kickoff at 8 pm.
