LSU-Tulane airing on pay-per-view TV

Only a few individual tickets remain for LSU's season opener against Tulane, but those who cannot get a ticket will have an opportunity to see the game. Tiger Rag has learned the game on Sept. 1 will be televised live from Baton Rouge on a pay-per-view basis.

An official announcement from LSU is expected in the next couple of days with details on the broadcast, which is expected to be made available throughout the state of Louisiana through various cable outlets.

The last time an LSU football game was broadcast on a pay-per-view (PPV) basis was in 1997 when the Tigers traveled to Vanderbilt and eeked out a 7-6 win over the Commodores. The heyday of LSU games available on PVV came in the early 1980's before the explosion of cable sports networks and major network contracts to broadcast Southeastern Conference football.

LSU will meet Tulane for the first time since the 1996 season, whe Gerry DiNardo's Tigers took a 35-17 decision over the last Green Wave team coached by Buddy Teevens, who is now an assistant coach at the University of Florida.

LSU is 64-22-7 all-time against Tulane and 2-1 against the Green Wave in season openers (1893, 1895, 1897).

Individual tickets for the LSU-Tulane game, along with those remaining for the rest of the Tigers' home games, can be purchased starting tomorrow (Saturday, August 18) at the LSU Ticket Office. They can be purchased in person or by telephone, 225-578-2184 or 1-800-960-8587. 

Tickets are also still avaliable for LSU's road games at Mississippi State and Kentucky. Cash, personal checks, Visa and MasterCard are accepted.
