Baton Rouge’s own LSU Tigers are set to take on Clemson in the 2020 College Football Playoff National Championship. Though the game will be played right down the road at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, those who don’t have a ticket can enjoy the traditional game day experience right here in Baton Rouge.

Watch the National Championship game surrounded by fellow LSU die-hards from locals, alumni and fans from all over the country, all congregating in the home city of the LSU Tigers, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Various bars, restaurants and LSU venues will be hosting watch parties in Baton Rouge with drink specials for fans, live music and more! The national championship will be played at 7 p.m. CST on Monday, Jan. 13, 2020 and airs live on ESPN.

Traditional LSU Away Game Hotspots


Game Day Central


Tigerland is the ultimate collection of college bars just off LSU’s campus and extremely popular among students. The area has been around for decades, though the names of the bars have come and gone. You can bet Tigerland will be filled with young fans to watch the National Championship, packed into what is now Reggie’s, Mike’s, JL’s and Fred’s (Baton Rouge’s oldest college bar). Honorable mention – though walkable but technically outside Tigerland, Bogie’s Bar on East Boyd has recently been brought back to life under new management and reopened!

Third Street

The hub of Baton Rouge’s nightlife can be found on a stretch of one street downtown, 3rd Street. With the option to venue hop from more than 10+ spots, find the right fit and fans for you!  Sports bars like Bengal Tap Room offers local brews and the game day menu , and there’s also venues with ample space like Boudreaux and Thibodeaux’s or The Basin Music Hall.
