Death Valley

True LSU fans only acknowledge one & it’s generally preceded by “Saturday night in…” An evening kick-off in Tiger Stadium is one to relish. Rowdy. Colorful. Deafening. Most are unaware of the school’s humble beginnings opening it’s doors in 1860 as a seminary based military academy. After a fire destroyed the original digs near Pineville, Louisiana, the cadets took up residence in Baton Rouge, a move that was originally intended to be temporary. Cadets of the Ole War Skule was established in 1955 in an effort to honor the school’s rich military history, traditions & values. Football came into play for LSU in 1893 with the first opponent being one of their largest rivals to date, Tulane. Over the years, a few additional programs have been added to the list including the Florida Gators & the Alabama Crimson Tide with the last stemming from a sense of betrayal of Nick Saban leaving after securing a National Championship title for the Tigers. Love Purple, Live Gold is a sentiment shared by students, faculty, alumni & football fanatics that in many ways explains that disappointment as it represents the pure heart, dedication & passion they have for their LSU family. Purple & Gold Potato Salad honors that game day spirit. Filled with regional flavors, the colorful take on this classic tailgating staple is versatile as a variety of small potatoes sporting different colors can be substituted to represent your school affiliation. Be certain to have it front & center as it’s sure to geaux quickly.
