Tiger Stadium is an outdoor football stadium located on the campus of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. It is the home field of the LSU Tigers football program. The stadium is most commonly referred to as Death Valley because of the ominous environment it provides for visiting teams. The nickname stems from the crowd noise at most games - originally it was called “deaf valley” but the name has since been misunderstood and has been changed to Death Valley. Visitors to the stadium will quickly understand where the name came from. Once during a 2003 game against Auburn, the stadium noise level reached a whopping 119 decibels!
Tiger Stadium has not only been a home for the LSU football team, it has also served as a temporary home field for the New Orleans Saints after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Tiger Stadium has seen a number of big and exciting games, and the 2007 season has been no exception. The season saw two record-breaking crowds of more than 92,000 spectators. LSU beat the defending champion Florida Gators at home. They beat Auburn with an incredible last second touchdown pass, and lost a heartbreaker to Arkansas in triple-overtime. Tiger Stadium seemingly ensures a memorable game for the Tigers.
