LSU

Louisiana State University’s Fighting Tigers competes in the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The SEC conference is a part of the NCAA Division 1’s Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS). The team became known as the Fighting Tigers in 1896 during its fourth season. The football team was formed several years earlier, however, in 1993. Dr. Charles Coates assembled the team to compete against Tulane in a game that they would ultimately lose. The school’s colors, purple and gold, stemmed from a trip to a local store during the time. In preparation for the Carnival season, the store was stocked with purple and gold ribbons. The green ones had not yet arrived. Noteworthy LSU players include Billy Cannon, LaRon Landry and current NFL player Eli McGuire.

Tiger Stadium, also known as Death Valley, is the stadium where the LSU team has played its home games since 1924. The original stadium seated about 12,000 people. Now, with a capacity of over 100,000, the stadium is the fifth largest city in the state of Louisiana on packed game days. The stadium hosted the New Orleans Saints in 2005 following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.
