Legend, and a lot of truth at times, have it that Tiger Stadium is one of the worst places in the country for an opposing team to play college football. This is why they call LSU’s home football stadium, “Death Valley.” The College Football Association in 1987, The Sporting News in 1989 and the Gannett News Service in 1995 listed Tiger Stadium as the most difficult place for a visiting team to play, according to LSU’s media guide. “The most feared road playing site in America,” was what Sport Magazine called Tiger Stadium in 1998. In 2007, ESPN.com called Tiger Stadium, “the scariest place to play in America” for an opponent. “We want our fans to make them feel at home,” Alleva said. “We will be treating South Carolina as the home team for the most part. We hope we don’t play it a lot, but our band will be playing the South Carolina fight song after they score. And the band will play their alma mater.” -Glenn Guilbeau / Gannett Louisiana, wwltv.comRead More
