Who uses telescopes anymore anyway?
LSU’s Tiger Stadium is expanding from 92,452 to over 100,000 in capacity and will be ready in time for the first game of the season, and LSU AD Joe Alleva had some advice to Alabama fans who are visiting Baton Rouge this season.
“They’re going to need telescopes to see the game,” Alleva told fans during a stop on the LSU Tiger Tour.
As part of LSU’s expansion, the South End Zone is adding a new upper deck with seats and luxury suites. Tiger Stadium will be the fourth largest SEC stadium post-expansion, trailing Texas A&M’s Kyle Field, Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium and Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Most visiting schools put visiting fans in upper corners, and that’s what Alleva is alluding to. Tiger Stadium is a great place to watch a football game.
Alabama leads the series 48-25-5 overall, and the Tide have also enjoyed a 6-4 record at Tiger Stadium over the last 10 games there.
