They sat in the NW corner of the student section for a while, before finally moving in the North End Zone. Don't quite remember when they moved from the West sideline to the NW corner though....

Cant think of his name right now, but I hear that too. It's in the mornings, during the top and bottom of the hour newscasts. After the news, they do traffic, then weather, then a 1 minute or so sports blurb, and he's the guy. I know it's not Kristian Garic, or whatever his name is. But it is an...

That's back in the day when tear-away jerseys were still legal. Looks like QB's and WR's have no stripes on them in the pic, so maybe those are tear-aways. ...

Capacity was just over 80,000. Largest attendance was over 86,000 for the 1973 LSU-Tulane game.
Approx. 300,000 claim to have been there for Dempsey's kick. :lol:...

Something about that second picture in your post seems wrong, though. The south end zone appears to be all one level without two separate decks, and the outside of the south end looks wrong. It looks like the north end but that's not how the real thing looks. Is that second photo real? It l...
