Tiger Stadium: Home of LSU Tigers

Tiger Stadium (alternatively known as Death Valley) for years has been a house of horrors for opposing teams. Like a vampire LSU loves to come out at night. This place is loud, actually registering a blip on a nearby seismograph during the “Earthquake Game” of 1988.

You are in the heart of football country as Louisiana has always been home to a disproportional number of athletes. You are also in one of the best tailgating scenes as Cajun grill masters seemly come out of the wood work… these guys can cook.

There isn’t experience in college football like a Saturday night in Tiger Stadium. “GEAUX TIGERS!”

“Baton Rouge happens to be the worst place in the world to be a visiting team.” – Bear Bryant
