🔼 Night Vision. The Tigers are taking on Army tomorrow night for the first time since 1931! We were graced with another Saturday Night in Death Valley with a 6:30pm kickoff time on the SEC Network. It’s also Homecoming and the King and Queen will be announced at halftime. Did you see those camo end zones? Tickets are available here.
🔼 Power Through. The Bayou Barbie is looking for more hardware! Angel Reese was just named to the Katherine McClain Award Preseason Watchlist as one of the best power forwards in the country. Last season, she set the NCAA record with 34 double-doubles after starting the season with 23-straight. She also set SEC records in rebounds, free throws made, and free throw attempts. She’s the third LSU player to be named to a watchlist just this week. She also became the first major college athlete ambassador for Reebok under President Shaq, she’s had a pretty solid week!
🔼 Professionalism. Let’s talk about Aaron Nola’s NLCS Game Two performance a few nights ago! He dropped his 2023 postseason ERA to 0.96 and struck out 7 batters in 6 innings, allowing zero runs. Another Pro Tiger that deserves kudos is Alex Bregman. He was named a 2023 Rawlings Gold Glove Award Finalist as an American League Third Baseman.
🔼 Last Call. Today is the last day to purchase an LSU Marucci 2023 National Championship bat! Don’t miss out on this piece of history. Your purchase supports LSU Baseball’s NIL Program through Bayou Traditions. Come out to The Box today at 2:30pm and Sunday at 3:30pm for some fall ball action with the 2024 team!
