    That's what I call a loyal fan. Road game attendance even when team is on the slide. Props to you. I've never been to a morning game but there will be plenty of posts from people to help. I would expect tailgaters everywhere and just walk around (taking your lumps in fun) and stop to visit with Tiger fans......... you won't have to ask for a sample, we love to feed our opponents.

    Hope you have a safe trip, I know you'll enjoy the atmosphere! :thumb:

    I think they are Tiger fans. But that's just a guess. :lol: Red is usually the one to post things for visitors to do when they travel here. Wait, I'm sure it's coming.

    Welcome to the board ms.tigerfan. Enjoy the game. Check the stadium map link below to see a view of the field from your seats.

    GAME DAY INFO:
    If you come at least four hours early you will find plenty of free parking. The north side LSU lots are small and fill up quickly. Avoid parking in the high-crime neighborhood to the north of campus, the better parking is on the south side anyway. If you run late, the big free grass lots off the river road aren't that far from the stadium, but the post-game traffic sucks.

    Try these links for maps and info:

    We eat good in Baton Rouge. There is some damn good food in this town, especially seafood. Mike Andersons, Phil's Oyster Bar, Drusilla Seafood, and Ralph & Kacoos are the most popular. All will be crowded on game weekends but you can get in with a reasonable wait, they are used to it.

    TJ Ribs is especially good at moving a crowd through on game day and serves fine BBQ. Good off-campus Bar & Grills abound. The Chimes, Walk-on's, The Pastime, Georges, Ivars, Sammy's and Brewbachers are all great LSU bars with good food. Juban's is kind of upscale but has the finest Creole cuisine in town. Boutin's for Cajun cuisine and music.

    And don't forget 24-hour breakfast at Louie's Cafe, a classic just-off-campus diner with the best omelettes and burgers in town.

    There is no shortage of night clubs in BR, many with live music. The Varsity Theatre and The Caterie are close to campus. Don't forget there are two riverboat Casinos downtown for fun and excitement.

    Nobody will ever agree on who has the best tailgate at at a Tiger game, but the Krewe of Ragoo is easily the most famous.

    Game-Day traditions: Go see Mike the Tiger's new habitat, our live Bengal Tiger Mascot. There is usually a Jambalaya stand nearby The LSU Tiger Band marches down the hill to Tiger Stadium well before the game and it is something to see and hear. It will be crowded, but the crowd response is part of the show.

    yes, I'm from Miss. but a long time Tiger fan. I come to BR every year they play Ole Miss and Ms.State at home, it's great to see them beat the ? out of them. That's to all for the info. and any other would be appreciated. Where does the Krewe of Ragoo tailgate. Tailgated with them about 4 years ago at Ms. State and it was great.

    I wouldn't use the word "demolish".

    Any SEC team is difficult to defeat, and Miss. State looks be coming into Baton Rouge with some momentum after that stunner over UAB.

    Look at what you said... gahhh...

    You are saying any sec team is difficult to defeat. Yet in the same breath you are calling moo u's win over UAB a stunner.

    Watson Brown has worked hard to build quite a program here in Birmingham in recent years.

    So what you're saying is that if Bama played them this week y'all would be scared.
