LSU will wear special uniforms versus Mississippi State Saturday night that will commemorate the “Silent Season” of 1918, where the Tigers did not play football because of World War One. LSU equipment manager Greg Stringfellow says the timing is right to conduct a tribute of this nature.

"Being 100 years ago, this is a good time to something like this, and taking all of the history with the Memorial Oak Grove, which is the area that memorializes the fallen LSU soldiers that fought in World War I," said Stringfellow.
