Why do so many college football fans want to attend an LSU game in Baton Rouge? When you talk to fans they will tell you a Tigers home game at Death Valley is on their sports bucket list. The reason is likely because attending an LSU home football game is an experience that goes beyond just football. Baton Rouge is fun, the pregame tailgating is scene is unbelievable, the noise inside the stadium is like no where else and the football game includes many of the finest athletes in the sport. The Tigers also have some of the best (most loyal) fans in sports, who show up in huge numbers to every game.
LSU has been playing college football since 1902, which is over a century the Tigers have had to build out their amazing fan base. Those fans are the reason that demand for LSU football tickets ranks right at the top of the SEC. There are a whole lot of folks in Louisiana who want to be there live in Baton Rouge to see the Tigers play. Every big Tigers home game will be packed as fans arrive days before the game to start the party. The tailgate scene at LSU is legendary and starts on Thursday for a Saturday game. LSU fans then carry over that party into the stadium on game day, which creates the deafening roars of the crowd throughout the game. Many visiting team fans circle this game on their calendar so they can make this trek to Bayou Country to see this spectacle up-close and in-person.
LSU's biggest home games are their conference games against SEC foes Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee. LSU will often play a few regional non-conference opponents like La Tech, McNeese State, Northwestern State, Southern and SE Louisiana. The Tigers will also schedule a few big name opponents like Florida State, Miami, Texas and UCLA.
The Tigers game versus Alabama often helps to decide which team will represent the SEC East in Atlanta at the Championship Game. LSU and Bama have more than 85 times dating back to their initial game in 1895. A handful of those games in recent years have come when both teams were ranked in the AP Top 5, which created incredibly strong demand for tickets. In addition to Alabama, LSU games against Arkansas have become quite a rivalry as they Battle for the Golden Boot. Texas A&M versus LSU is also a major draw, as these two schools compete heavily in recruiting and are only separately by 360 miles along Interstate 10. Other fans show up strong when Auburn, LSU or Ole Miss come to Baton Rouge, so many of the Tigers games create strong demand for tickets.
LSU football is an elite program, stocked with some of the best football players in the USA, so fans expect the Tigers to be in contention for the SEC Championship Game. A good 2023 season would see the Tigers get back to Atlanta to play for a chance to win the SEC Championship. That would likely earn them a spot in the top 4 of the College Football Playoffs, which provides them the potential to add another National Championship trophy to their collection. To do that they will have to get past Bama, Florida, A&M, etc. in what are sure to be some great games this season. Do not miss your opportunity to be there live for an LSU game. Geaux Tigers!
