How Texas tried to gain psychological advantage over LSU football in 2019

LSU football proved early in the 2019 season they were worthy of a pre-season top 10 ranking.

After opening the season with a 55-3 win against Georgia Southern in Baton Rouge, the Tigers headed to Austin, TX to take on the Texas Longhorns in a much anticipated early season showdown.

Prior to the matchup, the Longhorns did everything they could to gain a psychological advantage over LSU.

Tigers strength and conditioning coach Tommy Moffitt recently told WAFB’s Jacques Doucet an interesting story about the route LSU had to take to walk into the stadium.

According to Moffitt, the Tigers were dropped off at curb and forced to walk through a sea of Texas fans that were literally inches away from LSU’s players and coaches.
