Overview

"Nowhere do you find a more die-hard and fanatical following of a football team in America. To the fans of the Purple and Gold LSU football is a religion . . . all about life and death . . . talked about year around. Weddings rarely occur on Saturdays when LSU is playing in Tiger Stadium."
-from Mythical Tiger Stadium
In October 1958, the Louisiana State University football team won its first national title, and an impassioned football fan base unlike any other was born. Among the deafening roars of 93,000 filled seats, there emerges a sense of unity, passion, and magic on fall Saturday nights in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. With vivid detail, this book by longtime LSU fan Chet Hilburn presents thirty of LSU's greatest football games.
Names of former players such as Heisman Trophy winner Billy Cannon will evoke a sense of nostalgia and take fans back to pivotal games in LSU football history. With more than seventy gripping photographs and game plays recounted by coaches, players, and spectators, this book is a must-read for fans of LSU and all football alike.
Chet Hilburn has been an LSU football fan for more than fifty years. His love affair with the Purple and Gold began at the age of sixteen, when he first attended games while visiting his brother, who was studying at the university. Hilburn is a graduate of Louisiana Tech University and has forty-three years of experience as a newspaper reporter, editor, and author. Now retired, he lives in Houston, Texas.
