Night games in Tiger Stadium are a spectacle and the food choices all around are fantastic! One thing is certain: if I ever choose to feature a tailgating spread for Taste of the Town, LSU will be at the top of the list.

But the crowd explosion drowned out whatever was coming out of his mouth. It was the closest golf has ever come to sounding like fourth-and-goal at LSU's Tiger Stadium on a Saturday night.

College football is LSU's Tiger Stadium at night.

I know this is a bit redundant, but it is really hard to explain just how loud Tiger Stadium is when you're standing on the field. The crowd is moving and swaying so much, and in so many directions, it makes the stands look blurry, like a pointillist painting.

Baton Rouge happens to be the worst place in the world for a visiting team.

I have a little tradition that humbles me as a man that lets me know I'm a part of the field and a part of the game, and it's the very bottom as well as the very top.

From Bourbon Street to Baton Rouge, the freaks come out at night in Louisiana.

And nowhere are they more raucous and unnerving than at Tiger Stadium.

It never rains in Tiger Stadium.

I grew up knowing a lot about LSU watching them on TV.

They were always on TVI had a bunch of friends and family at LSU. It's a cool stadium. I never got to go to it. I heard it's really a special place. It's a big place. It's intimidating. It's loud. We have to play really good there. I'm looking forward to playing there.

LSU is my personal favorite. Maybe it's my penchant for the spicy stuff. But there's nothing like sampling a little gumbo, a little jambalaya and then diving face-first in to a shrimp boil.

I've always loved empty stadiums, none more than this one.

It feels alive when it's packed and now it looks like it's resting, waiting for next week. This building has seen a lot of things.

I'm not sure what it was like to walk into the Coliseum, but I bet it was something like this.

I get asked about the best games I've called, and as far as college football goes, the Florida-LSU environment was as good as I've ever been around. I had always heard about night games at Tiger Stadium and had never gotten the chance to call one. It was really special to be a part of that and then the game, my gosh, how can anybody ever forget that. The fourth quarter and LSU's final drive, that's something I'll always remember.

You cant run a football game in Tiger Stadium without 1,500-1,600 people to help.
