The college football season is right around the corner and that means college fans are getting pumped up for another football season. If you are planning to go to an LSU game this season in Baton Rouge at Tiger Stadium, you may need to stop for a second and read this.

Yesterday, LSU announced that fans that plan to attend any LSU home football game will need to have proof of vaccination or show proof of a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours prior to the game.

Children 12 and under will not have to show proof of a negative test but masks will be required for kids between the ages of 5 to 11 years old and LSU is encouraging masks for those younger than 5.

LSU is the first SEC school in the conference to announce this policy, LSU said that the rise in COVID-19 cases and the "highly transmissible" delta variant in Louisiana was the main concern in making this decision.

This policy will take effect starting on September 11th for LSU's home opener against the McNeese Cowboys. For all you folks here in Lake Charles, this means if you had plans to travel to Baton Rouge to go see McNeese and LSU play, you will need to have your proof of vaccination or show proof of a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours prior to the game.

This is always a huge game for McNeese fans and the city of Lake Charles. The last time LSU and McNeese played, it seemed like half of Lake Charles was there. Will that change now?

We will see. Right now LSU Tiger Stadium and the Ceasars Superdome are the only two sports venues in Louisiana with these requirements for entry.
