LSU might be a big underdog headed into a date with top-ranked Alabama in Bryant–Denny Stadium Saturday, but that would never stop Tiger fans from traveling to watch it unfold. Barrett Elder with Tuscaloosa Tourism and Sports says LSU/Alabama games are invariably exciting.
"We love having LSU fans in town, they travel well and bring a great crowd," said Elder.
LSU fans know the atmosphere is electric inside Tiger Stadium for big primetime games like this. Elder says you can expect to see the same thing over there.
"With Alabama playing so well, people are really excited to come watch the team and see if they will witness history in the making," said Elder.
Alabama has won six straight against LSU, but Elder says both sides consistently put up a challenge which is a blast for fans to take in. He says he’s not one of those fans who is getting tired of seeing the Crimson Tide win.
"People are expecting, week in and week out, for Alabama to just dominate," said Elder. "Some people find it boring, I find it awesome."
