Historic Photos of LSU Football
Papier-mâché tigers, riots on the field, Chinese bandits, tailgating before a trip to the stadium nicknamed “Death Valley”—all these things and more describe the events, places, and people associated with over 100 years of football at Louisiana State University.
From its beginnings in 1893 on the Parade Grounds of the University’s downtown campus, to Huey Long’s intervention in expanding the football stadium on the current campus, to the fully enclosed Death Valley of today, LSU football and its die-hard fans have played a very large role in the life of the university, the city of Baton Rouge, and the state itself.
Telling the team’s story through stunning black-and-white images, Historic Photos of LSU Football presents nearly 100 years of LSU football history as only the camera can. Join us in reliving some of the most thrilling moments in LSU sports history. Geaux Tigers!
