The UCLA Bruins released their 2021 football schedule Tuesday, with a full 12-game slate highlighted by the team’s first meeting with LSU.

The Bruins will open their season Aug. 28 — the earliest start in the program’s history — against Hawaii the Rose Bowl. That game will be followed Sept. 4 with a visit from LSU, which won the national championship in the 2019 season before slipping to a 5-5 record last year.

UCLA will play seven home games and five road games. Besides LSU and Hawaii, the Bruins’ other non-conference opponent is Fresno State.
