BATON ROUGE – The 2014 LSU gymnastics schedule is listed as one of the Top 5 strongest schedules in collegiate gymnastics this season according to CollegeGymFans.com and RoadToNationals.com.

LSU, which is ranked No. 5 in the preseason poll, will compete against No. 1 Florida, No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Oklahoma twice in the regular season.

The Tigers will face a ranked opponent in every road meet this season: No. 8 Georgia on Jan. 17, No. 11 Arkansas on Feb. 7, Oklahoma on Feb. 9, Oklahoma, No. 17 Arizona and No. 21 Kentucky on Feb. 15, Florida on Feb. 21 and the SEC Championship on March 22.

LSU will host No. 13 Auburn on Jan. 24, Alabama on Jan. 31 and Kentucky on March 14.
