LSU baseball fans, with boiled shrimp, potatoes, corn on the cob, gumbo and more in tow, wowed Missouri fans with their patented purple-and-gold Tiger tailgating this past weekend.
According to a Columbia Missourian report, no tailgate before a Missouri baseball game this year was as large as LSU’s, stadium officials said. And the attendance at Saturday’s game – 2,559 – was the largest of the season by about 150 fans. That came on a day when the baseball game slightly overlapped with Missouri’s spring football game.
"Of all the schools we've had, LSU has the best tailgate," Peggy Llewellyn, an event staff worker at Taylor Stadium, said in the report. "These guys know how to party."
To complement an apparently impressive tailgate scene, the LSU baseball team swept Missouri in the three-game set.
LSU (25-11, 9-6 SEC) has won four-straight games and is now ranked in the top 10 in four of the six major college baseball polls.
On Wednesday, LSU hosts Southeastern Louisiana then faces top 10-ranked Mississippi State at Alex Box Stadium this weekend.
