LSU's contraflow plan to get tested with SEC home opener
Posted on 9/19/2014 9:09:00 AM.
The largest crowd to ever watch a football game in Tiger Stadium is expected Saturday when the Tigers face SEC West foe Mississippi State. The game is nearly sold-out in, which means 100-thousand tickets have been sold and LSU Sports Information Director Michael Bonnette says this will put to test their contralow plan after the game.
 
"On Nicholson, from Skip Bertman Drive all the way to Bluebonnet is contraflow and it's been executed very well up to this point."
 
Contraflow is being used this year for fans that are heading south on Nicholson Drive. Bonnette says a record crowd and a potentially close game, with tens of thousands of fans leaving at the same time, will give them a better idea if it works as intended.
 
Bonnette says they are also encouraging fans to get to campus early. He says last week they had a bottle neck for those fans tyring to get to their seat in the east upper deck.
 
"We want fans to know if they are in the east upper and you are willing and capable of walking up ramps, you can utilize gates 22 through 28 on the south side."
