The LSU Tigers are off to an incredible season start!
The season started strong when the Tigers faced off against Georgia Southern for the two programs’ very first meeting. By the time the first quarter was done, it was clear that it would be an uphill fight at best for Georgia Southern, as they didn’t get on the board until they scored three points in the second quarter compared to LSU’s 42 at the end of the first half. Georgia Southern had hopes of picking up the pace but failed to gain any momentum, ending the game with a crushing 55-3 loss.
The Tigers then faced the Longhorns, who they last met at the 2003 Cotton Bowl Classic resulting in a loss. So the Tigers were hungry for a win to pay back the defeat the Longhorns handed them. After seizing an early and hard-fought 3 point lead, the Tigers kept up the momentum pushing back hard. They even made up for a disappointing third quarter, to finally win 45-38.
The program then faced off against Northwestern State for a game that brought these two teams back together after their 2011 battle. But much like the Eagles in Week One, the team couldn’t build enough momentum to push back against Tigers’ aggression. This led to a 65-14 win against the Demons.
The Vanderbilt Commodores were the next team to play against the Tigers, and going into the match sportswriters were divided on the result. Some players expected the Tigers winning streak to continue, while others believed that the Commodores would do what the Longhorns couldn’t and break the streak. Early on, the game seemed lost for Vanderbilt, as the Tigers had a commanding 28-7 lead. The second quarter proved to be a tighter game with both teams adding ten points to the board, as both teams struggled to break through the other’s defense. After the half, Vanderbilt managed to put up 14 points, while the Tigers countered with a whopping 21 points. At this point, the game was pretty much lost to Vanderbilt, but they played as hard as they could and ended the fourth quarter adding 7 points to match the Tigers’ own. The 66-38 final score was telling.
For the fifth and final match to date against Utah State, fans of the Aggies were certainly expecting a streak ending the match. They even had hope when the fourth quarter ended 7-6 in favor of the Tigers. But the rest of the game was an absolute blow out as the Aggies couldn’t get close enough to record any more points, and the Tigers lead grew with each touchdown and field goal. The game ended 42 to 6.
What this streak means for the Tigers has yet to be seen, but one thing’s for certain. Fans of the Purple and Gold are going to love what comes next at LSU Tiger Stadium.
The Features that Make Tigers Stadium special
LSU Tigers Stadium has a load of features that make it special compared to other NCAA football stadiums. Read on to learn what you can expect with your visit.
One of the most commonly noticed differences is how the stadium numbers yard lines ending in 5 and 0, unlike most stadiums in the world that only add numbering for yards ending in 0. The stadium also uses H style goalposts rather than the Y or Tuning folk styles that most fans and teams are used to. While the goalposts are supported and aren’t true classic H style goalposts, they do offer the LSU tigers the chance to run through the goalposts when entering the field. Tigers Stadium is only one of three Division I schools that still use the H style posts.
Also, Tigers Stadium is one of few stadiums that allow alcohol sales on site. Starting with the 2019 football season, LSU will sell beer and wine across the stadium, stopping sales at the end of the third quarter. Alcohol will not be sold in any of the concession stands close to the student section. This also adds other regulations for safety including the dispensing of all beverages in plastic containers.
In 2009, LSU unveiled a huge Daktronics HD Video Board that cost the university $3.1 million. The display is placed in the North end zone and features the phrase “Welcome to Death Valley” a moniker that the university shares with Clemson. The display got a later makeover in 2014 with the opening of the South Endzone Upper Deck, with the phrase situated in larger lettering on the front of the new deck.
