As a lifelong LSU fan that has lived in the upstate for some time Im very familiar with both programs. I spent my first twenty years in south Louisiana, and my last thirty here.
Clemson and LSU have always had this little rivalry because of the “death valley thing” both being tigers, etc. I have attended many Clemson games and have indeed cheered hard for CU when there. It’s been fun being an LSU Tiger here and Im super thrilled about this game!!!
Lots can be debated as i have seen on both forums, but ultimately its two proud programs squaring off. One is the current Beast of college football and one has been there before but not lately. Seems like CU kinda ended that in a bowl game in 2012. That also began CU’s assent to the top.....where they currently reside.
I truly hope that LSU gets some get back in this game, obviously.....Im an LSU fan after-all. But I hope it a classic and I hope it’s injury free on both sides, with little influence from the zebras.
Congrats on your run and success CU, but.........Geaux Tigers!
