Since their first meeting on November 18, 1885, the Alabama versus LSU football rivalry is one of college football’s premier games every season. In total, the rivalry is one-sided, with Alabama dominating the all-time series; the Crimson Tide are 52-25-5 against the Tigers.
The best part of rivalries isn’t the all-time series record, 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?
After this unsuspecting Alabama groom cuts the cake at his wedding, his LSU bride made sure she didn’t let the Crimson Tide colors be the only ones represented that day.
Fortunately, 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 just 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 cake.
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 3, when the Crimson Tide roll into Death Valley in Baton Rouge to take on the Tigers.
It cannot be confirmed that the groom actually ate any of his cake.
