What did we pour into today's Brew?
🏈 Sold out Saturday night
⚾️ Celebrating a championship
🐯 And much, much more!
The Vault. Since the 2003 National Championship team is being honored during Saturday’s game, let’s step into The Vault and relive some of the best moments from that season!
With a mix of guts, will, heart and talent and spurred by a biased crowd that was the largest to watch a sporting event in the Louisiana Superdome, LSU (13-1) won its first football National Championship in 45 years by pounding Heisman Trophy winner Jason White and topping his Oklahoma Sooners, 21-14, on January 4, 2004. Relive the day now on LSU GOLD.
