FOUR days...



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."



In 2001, ESPN sideline reporter Adrian Karsten said, "Death Valley in Baton Rouge is the loudest stadium I've ever been in."



In 2003, ESPN's Chris Fowler called LSU his favorite game day experience.



More recently, in 2007, ESPN named Tiger Stadium "the scariest place to play," saying that "Tiger Stadium is, by far, the loudest stadium in the country."



In 2009 Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee stated "Unfair is playing LSU on a Saturday night in Baton Rouge." on Fox news with Sean Hannity.



Also in 2009, ESPN writer Chris Low listed Tiger Stadium's Saturday night atmosphere as unsurpassed in the country, ranking it No. 1 out of the conference's 12 stadiums.



Tiger Stadium was the site of the legendary "Earthquake Game" against Auburn in 1988. When Tommy Hodson completed a game-winning touchdown pass, the crowd reaction registered as a legitimate earthquake on the seismograph on campus.





I'm SO ready for this game....



GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!
