LSU’s players won’t be able to feed off the energy the Tiger Marching Band typically gives them on the road in hostile environments this fall.

That’s because the Tiger Marching Band won’t be going on the road this year due to concerns regarding the coronavirus pandemic, that’s according to Tiger Marching Band Director Kelvin Jones, who recently shared that information with George Morris of The Advocate.

LSU currently has road trips scheduled to Houston on Sept. 19 vs. Rice, at Florida on Oct. 10, at Arkansas on Oct. 17, at Auburn on Nov. 21 and at Texas A&M on Nov. 28.

This is unfortunate news for LSU’s band but at least they will get to play in front of the likes of Texas and Alabama in Baton Rouge this fall.
