BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU fans will enjoy a new and improved Tiger Stadium when the 2012 football season launches Sept. 1.
Already complete is the replacement of more than 400 windows on the stadium's north end and a new coating to the stadium's outer façade. A new lighting system has been installed that turns the upper archways of the north end of the stadium purple and gold and lights the "LSU" on the stadium's north scoreboard.
Due for completion by the first game is a new portal gating system on the stadium's west side which will include the Scotty Moran National Championship Plaza as well as plaques commemorating LSU All-Americans and members of the College Football Hall of Fame.
The renovations are privately funded through the Tiger Athletic Foundation.
