Did you want a seat for LSU’s games against Texas A&M this week? You’re – almost – out of luck.

Two of the three games are hard sellouts, meaning there isn’t a single seat available, and the series opener Thursday has just a handful of tickets remaining.

LSU and Texas A&M have a combined record of 69-11 and are tied for first place at 12-5 in the Southeastern Conference. In many polls, the Tigers and Aggies are No. 1 and No. 2 in the nation.

As of 10 a.m., there were just 12 outfield tickets available to the Thursday game. You can purchase tickets here.

LSU is selling standing room-only tickets for the three games. It’s unclear how many standing room-only tickets the school will distribute, but the number is likely in excess of 1,000.

Alex Box seats 10,326, excluding standing room-only sections, and the school often times announces ticket sales in excess of 11,000.

LSU sold 9,200 season tickets this season. The school reserves about 300-500 seats for students and about 300-500 seats for individual game tickets. The other 200-300 seats are reserved for the families of players and coaches and the visiting team, which gets about 75 tickets per game.
