Tiger Stadium has the dubious distinction of having hosted the New Orleans Saints after Hurricane Katrina, but today it's an all-college arena. It also hosts one of the country's most rowdy pre-game atmospheres with students sliding through mud, racing around in shopping carts and dancing to crunk and electro music. The fact that LSU plays a lot of night games helps fuel the fun.
At the Stadium:
Tailgating at an SEC game is a given, and LSU's scene is up there with the best of them. (Look out for The Unsupervised Bus, a converted school bus full of Abita Beer.) But try not to get too rowdy, or you might end up like an LSU player: arrested. For something on the safer side, check out the Golden Band and Golden Girls hyping up the crowd before they enter the stadium for their rightly famous pre-game show.
LSU has special NCAA permission to wear white jerseys at home games. But unless you're going to a game against an SEC opponent, stick to purple and gold--they don't wear white for anyone else.
