According to Scott Rabalais with The Advocate, LSU athletic Director Joe Alleva keeps getting pressure to move the Tigers football game with Texas A&M to Thanksgiving day, but he continues to refuse.

“As long as I’m here, we will not play in Tiger Stadium on a Thursday,” Alleva said. “I guarantee you that.”
Alleva said he hopes to get a firm date on the LSU-Texas A&M game later this month at the SEC Spring Meeting, according to Rabalais.

I have no problem with the game being played on Friday. I
It will be on Thanksgiving Day when the game is played at College Station, which us fine because it is their place. I like being able sit back on Saturday and watch the other games.

LSU doesn't need the TV money that bad to have to play on Thanksgiving day.

I hope he's right, but never underestimate the power of the almighty dollar. If the game doesn't get moved to Thanksgiving night, I won't be surprised to see us play on Friday like we used to against Arkansas.

It's makes a difference to season ticket holders who already get stripped of a good home game by them playing in Hou/Dal (which I like). We don't want to have one of the few premier home games played on a dam Thursday. Alleva better stick to his guns
