BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) – LSU is giving fans the opportunity to literally grab a piece of history from the Tigers’ 12-0 season on Dec. 2.
The LSU Athletic Department will have free slabs of sod from Tiger Stadium available to fans as contractors begin removing sod for upcoming field renovations.
Crews will be replacing the field and improve drainage in the stadium over the next several months.
Over 3,300 slabs Tiger Stadium sod will be available for free on Dec. 2 while supplies last.
Fans are asked to take no more than four slabs per person. The slabs measure about 18″x24″.
The sod will be giving out to fans on a first-come, first-serve basis from 4-6 p.m. on Dec. 2 at the Bullpen lot at Alex Box stadium.
LSU defeated Texas A&M 50-7 on Nov. 30 in Tiger Stadium in what was the last LSU home game for many senior players, including Heisman-hopeful quarterback Joe Burrow.
LSU faces the Georgia Bulldogs in the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta at 3 p.m. on Dec. 7.
