| Tiger Rant|| re: Cheap flights to Houston on Gameday - BayouBengal on 7/23/14 at 9:45 am|
4 hours from downtown Houston to LSU campus is very doable even if you don't have a lead foot. But that's only if traffic 100% cooperates. Beaumont is a choke point that will get you as well as the random wrecks on I-10 b/t LC and Laffy. Then there's the basin. Driving from BR to MSY probably isn't...

[quote]This is what our group is doing. It's certainly not worth setting up our own tailgate, and $50 really isn't that bad. I had no problem paying that considering the convenience, food included, music, AC, and whatever else they throw it. It should be a good time.

Ticket scalping is legal in Texas but you can't do on the stadium grounds. StubHub usually sets up in the parking lot of an old car dealership just across 610 from the stadium. Up and down Kirby you should see other ticket resellers set up in tents. ...

If you want them and will use them, get them. If they're in the upper deck don't expect to make any money off of them if you can't make a game. It's nice have guaranteed tickets and also season ticket holders get first dibs on road game and bowl game tickets. If you're not picky about seats, the onl...
