When you're in the SEC, football in the fall becomes a huge priority. I'm not kidding when I say that people here actually plan their weddings around football games. It's a BIG deal.
An even bigger deal is that LSU is playing one of their biggest (if not THE biggest) rival this weekend, Alabama. And if one thing can be said about LSU fans, is that they are certainly passionate about their football team.
Check out the LSU v. Alabama hype video...it's AWESOME:
