Report: LSU Will Likely Wear Non-White Jerseys For 1st SEC Home Game Since 1996

Saturday's LSU-South Carolina game is going to be a strange one. The game has been moved from Columbia to Baton Rouge due to intense flooding in South Carolina, giving the Tigers and extra home game. As a show of respect, the LSU band will be playing South Carolina's fight song and alma mater during pregame. To top it off, it will be South Carolina in whites, and not LSU.

That means LSU will, in all likelihood, be wearing purple, which it rarely does against SEC opponents at home.

Somehow, we don't think this will slow down Leonard Fournette at all, but it will be an interesting sight.
