Since their first meeting on November 18, 1885, the Alabama versus LSU rivalry is one of college football’s premier games every season. In total though, the rivalry is one-sided, with ‘Bama dominating the all-time series; the Alabama Crimson Tide are 53-25-5 against the LSU Tigers.
The best part to all of college football’s best rivalries aren’t the all-time series records, although it does feel nice getting to brag about it. The best part is the chance to show up your counterpart, hold bragging rights over their head, and make sure they never forget who their biggest rival really is.
That’s kind of like marriage, right? Nothing gets a life-long rivalry going quite like a little wedding day surprise hiding inside the groom’s cake.
After this unsuspecting Alabama groom cuts into his wedding cake, his LSU bride made sure she didn’t let the Crimson Tide colors be the only ones represented that day.
Fortunately for us, it was all caught on camera.
For the Alabama fans in the room, you can imagine bringing that purple and gold cake up for a taste had to make the experience a little sour.
What’s worse is the groom is forced to listen as wedding guests rain down “L-S-U” chants on the cake-cutting ceremony. All the poor guy wanted to do was enjoy a piece of Alabama cake. Instead, he had to muscle through the unwanted LSU filling.
College football rivalries are no strangers to prank wars. With the collegiate atmosphere continually pumping fuel into the rivalry, no one is safe from the occasional prank. Urban Meyer’s yard fell victim to a Michigan fan sending him a message, just in case Meyer forgot who Ohio State plays at the end of every season.
This prank between the newlyweds was all in good fun, but I’m sure a house divided won’t be so happy-go-lucky come November, when the Crimson Tide welcome their rivals from Baton Rouge to take on the Tigers inside Bryant-Denny Stadium.
It cannot be confirmed that this guy actually enjoyed any of the cake.
