LSU 2021 Schedule Preview: Central Michigan

I must admit going from the conference-only schedule of 2020 to the usual nine SEC games and three non-conference opponents is a bit of a letdown.

The good news is that the greatest environment in all of sports, Saturday nights in Death Valley, will be back to normal and Tiger Stadium will be at 100 percent capacity to welcome in the Central Michigan Chippewas who are led by a familiar face.

Central Michigan Chippewas

2020: 3-3 (3-3 MAC)

2021 S&P+ Projection: 82nd

2021 Recruiting Class: 87th

Head Coach: Jim McElwain (11-9 through two seasons)

Offensive Coordinator: Kevin Barbay

Defensive Coordinator: Robb Akey

That’s right folks, Jim McElwain is coming back to Baton Rouge.
