It’s been quite awhile since LSU played Vanderbilt in football. LSU fans have to think hard to remember the last time the Tigers faced the Commodores on the gridiron, which was in 2010. In the nine years between football matchups, the two teams have faced off in some epic baseball matchups. An 11-inning thriller in the 2013 SEC Championship Game, a wild comeback that featured five runs across two innings in 2016, and a 1-0 pitcher’s duel in a rubber match in 2018.
Their most recent matchup was not one of these classics. Vanderbilt routed LSU 13-4 in the 2019 SEC Tournament, but most LSU fans were more frustrated by what was happening in the stands than on the field.
