LSU Honors Army In Unique Way Ahead Of Saturday’s Game
LSU has a unique non-conference game coming up on Saturday as it will host a service academy. The LSU Tigers will take on Army for just the 2nd time in program history.
The Army Black Knights are coming to town, and at his Monday press conference, coach Brian Kelly said the team had some great festivities planned ahead of the Black Knights making their way to town.
"The respect and the honor that we have in playing this game, we're excited about this weekend," LSU coach Brian Kelly said.
One of them was revealed on Wednesday as LSU has painted the end zones in a camouflage pattern in honor of Army. This will be just the second time the Tigers have faced a service academy in program history and the first in 92 years as the Tigers and Black Knights faced in 1931, a game Army won 20-0.
"The pageantry of it, the cadets being at the game, singing the alma mater with Army or Navy or Air Force, whoever the academy is," Kelly said, "all those things are, I think, memories that our players will have for the rest of their lives."
The Tigers have won their last two games, and they will look to keep things rolling against Army on Saturday before the bye in Week 9 and a potentially decisive SEC West matchup against Alabama to start November.
LSU is playing Army inside Tiger Stadium for the first time at 6:30 p.m. CT. The game will be broadcast on SEC Network.
