"Established in 1989"
LSU football tickets treat fans to a live look at the Cats and the Hat.
LSU coach Les Miles, affectionately known as the Hat, has cemented the Tigers as perennial contenders in the SEC. And if you’re a contender in the SEC, you’re also a national champion contender.
That’s the case one again in Baton Rouge, where Miles has assembled another ridiculously talented squad that certainly will have a say in who hoists the crystal football as the last BCS National Champions. College football is going to a four-team playoff format in 2013.
And LSU would like nothing more to cap off the BCS era with their third national championship, matching mighty Alabama. The debate would then become who is the best team of the BCS era: The Crimson Tide or the Bayou Bengals?
LSU Tigers tickets certainly have the potential to deliver another national championship run, but it won’t be easy. The Tigers play another brutal schedule, highlighted by a season-opener against the TCU Horned Frogs at magnificent Dallas Cowboys Stadium. Then, quarterback Zach Mettenberger and the Tigers must deal with a treacherous run through the SEC, including a giant showdown Between the Hedges in Athens, Ga. Against the Bulldogs and a trip to Tuscaloosa to tackle the two-time defending champion Alabama Crimson Tide.
Mettenberger begins his senior season with tons of promise. He had an up-and-down junior season, his first starting for LSU. But with a year under his belt, this pro prospect could put some big numbers. He’ll have plenty of weapons at his disposal to do so. His top four receivers from last year are back, led by the dynamic Odell Beckham. Beckham is a game-changer, capable of going to the house every time he touches the ball.
Everything is in place for another thrilling season at Death Valley, where LSU football tickets are in high demand. Cajun tailgating starts in the early hours, so don’t waste time making plans to buy Tigers tickets to get a live look at another run at a BCS National Championship.
LSU Football ticket info and other information
LSU’s Tiger Stadium on a Saturday night in Baton Rouge is one of college football’s most unique venues. It starts with an afternoon full of tailgating. The menu consists of the Bayou’s best alligator sausage, gumbo and even a little crawfish, all washed down with some fine Cajun potion. By around 5 p.m., the BBQs begin to simmer. Tiger fans begin to growl. By kick off, Tiger Stadium transforms into Death Valley and literally begins to shake. It’s an intimidating atmosphere for any opponent, and one that every college football fan needs to experience at least once. Make this the season you take a trip to Death Valley with LSU football tickets from ABCTickets.com.
Head coach Les Miles enters his second season as the Tigers’ field general. After taking over for current Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban before the 2005 season, Miles led the Tigers to an SEC West Division title and an emphatic blowout of Miami in the Peach Bowl. With the majority of the talent returning, the Bayou Bengals will be looking for more this year.
Quarterback JaMarcus Russell had a breakout season in 2005, before suffering a season-ending injury in the SEC Championship Game against Georgia. But back-up Matt Flynn filled in admirably, giving Miles the luxury of two reliable, experienced signal callers to orchestrate his pro-style offense. The backfield will also get a boost with the return of bruising tailback Alley Broussard. As a sophomore, Broussard led the Tigers in rushing, but suffered a season-ending injury before he could step onto the field last year. He’s back and will join Justin Vincent to form one of the nation’s top backfields. Receiver Dwayne Bowe is one of the best in the SEC and is capable of getting behind the secondary in a blink of an eye. They’ll need every bit of their explosive offense to tackle the typically brutal SEC schedule.
Before conference play begins, the Tigers must deal with a difficult game with Mike Stoops’ improving Arizona Wildcats. In-state rival Tulane will also visit Tiger Stadium in a highly-anticipated September game. Fresno State and the University Louisiana-Lafayette round out the Tigers’ non-conference slate. The Bayou will be boiling again, as the Tigers prepare to make another run at an SEC title and berth in a BCS bowl. A Saturday night in Baton Rouge is a one-of-a-kind experience for any college football fan. So make arrangements to be in Death Valley this fall with LSU Tigers football tickets from ABCTickets.com.
