ranked the 15 most intimidating College Football stadiums in the country and LSU's Tiger Stadium came in at No. 1. Here is what they had to say:
In 1988, LSU was facing Auburn at home. The Tigers won the contest, 7-6, following a game-winning touchdown pass thrown by quarterback Tommy Hodson to running back Eddie Fuller as time was expiring.
The crowd reaction to that play registered an earthquake on the seismograph in the Louisiana Geological Survey on LSU’s campus.
There’s really not much more that needs to be said about LSU’s Tiger Stadium. It’s incredibly loud and referred to as “Death Valley” for a reason. The Tigers have lost just one home game since 2010.
LSU has expanded its capacity this offseason, too. It’s hard to imagine Tiger Stadium becoming more intimidating than it has been, though. It’s already the toughest place to play in college football.
