LSU vs Alabama
Who else is super excited for the game this weekend? There is so much hype about the LSU vs Alabama game and with good reason. With our last heartbreaking loss to Alabama–LSU wants a win!
I’ve read multiple news stories about statistics and who’s ranked what, but the bottom line is NOISE!
LSU is the number one ranked loudest stadium in College Football, which makes it impossible for the visiting team to communicate, hear calls and concentrate. Tiger Stadium is well known nationally for having among the best game day atmospheres in college football as well as being one of the most difficult places for an opposing team to play.
Despite being 14–2 at Tiger Stadium, Alabama head coach Bear Bryant once remarked that “Baton Rouge happens to be the worst place in the world for a visiting team. It’s like being inside a drum.”
According to Wikipedia, in the 1980s, a reporter called Tiger Stadium “DEAF Valley,” as a play on words relating to Clemson’s “Death Valley,” which was coined as such in the 1940s by an opposing coach.
Survey after survey has concluded that Tiger Stadium is the most difficult place for a visiting team to play. ESPN named Tiger Stadium “the scariest place to play,” saying that “Tiger Stadium is, by far, the loudest stadium in the country.”
Alabama maybe ranked number one, but that is no match for LSU’s fan base. LSU also prefers night games in Tiger Stadium with its opponents, LSU’s fan’s will be out in full force …. Bring on the Tide!
