With LSU playing a road game "at home," it felt like dressing up for the occasion. 

Versus South Carolina on Saturday, LSU is wearing a while helmet and white pants to go along with its traditional purple jersey. This uniform combination has never been worn. 

This past summer, South Carolina sent a letter to LSU, relaying the message that it would be decked out in all white for the game, despite it being a Gamecocks’ home contest. 

As such, LSU broke out the purple top. It’s the first time since 1994 the Tigers will wear a purple jersey at home in SEC play. 

The white helmets should look slick against the purple and yellow backdrop of Tiger Stadium.
