You’ve probably heard this by now, but I don’t think we’ve posted it officially — LSU’s home game against North Texas will go on as scheduled tomorrow in Baton Rouge. Hurricane Isaac battered the area, but LSU AD Joe Alleva said yesterday afternoon that the show must go on:
“Our options are limited as far as opportunities to play this game and there was minimal damage to the stadium, so we are proceeding with the season opener on Saturday night. We understand there are portions of the state that are still recovering from the storm and there may be some fans that cannot, for various reasons, make it to Tiger Stadium. We wish those people and everyone adversely affected by the storm our best wishes for a full recovery.”
The damage to the stadium was described as “minimal” water damage in the pressbox and Stadium Club areas.
