Auburn Fan Goes on 'Grand Theft Auto' Rampage Near LSU Campus

When LSU hears about a bizarre arrest at a Baton Rouge bar, they hold their breath to see if it's a starter. But before the Bayou Bengals' game against Auburn on Saturday, it was one of the other Tigers who left in a squad car. According to WLVA-TV, an Auburn fan decided to take out his anger at his rivals by channeling a game of Grand Theft Auto.

Rolling Hill: RB's 3 TDs Lead LSU to 35-21 Win Over Auburn

LSU improved to 4-0 on a rainy Saturday night in Baton Rouge, beating the Auburn Tigers 35-21.  The Bayou Bengals dominated the first half, jumping to a 21-0 lead, by taking advantage of Auburn's sloppy play, and relying on its running game, in a rain soaked half.

Saints Set to Face Cardinals, Including Ex-LSU Stars Peterson, Mathieu

The New Orleans Saints' early season schedule isn't designed to get fans too far out of the comfort zone. Weeks 1 and 2 brought division battles against the teams WhoDats have always loved to hate. Now, in Week 3, the Cardinals come to town (Noon, Fox) with a pair of former Tigers we used to cheer for at DBU. Still, the alternate reality that the team is used to must still be in place, as the defense is scoring points and Breesus is talking about needing to execute better.

LSU Renews Tiger Battle with Auburn in Death Valley

The Blazers and Golden Flashes were fun distractions, but it's time for the LSU football team to face their own species. On Saturday night, the Tigers of Auburn bring a no-huddle offense along with the usual War Eagle histrionics to Death Valley for LSU's first SEC showdown of the season (6:45 p.m., ESPN).

UPDATED: The Dekest Link: LSU Frat Mocks Kent State Massacre

Friendly “tiger bait” taunts and lewd signs on fraternity row are nothing new on LSU's campus, but many believe yesterday’s banner went too far. The Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity hung a sign that read “Getting Massacred is Nothing New to Kent State,” on the front of their house. DKE is taking heat for mocking the 1970 shooting of unarmed Kent State students by the Ohio National Guard. 

LSU Pummels Kent State 45-13

by Chris Rinadli

LSU improved to 3-0 on the season Saturday night, dominating Kent State, 45-13. With the convincing win, the Tigers rounded out a strong showing in their first three, non-conference games. Just like last week's stomping of UAB, the offense was once again able to move the ball as they pleased, tallying up 571 yards.

LSU Gameday: Kent State Heads for Death Valley

Sports Illustrated and Mike the Tiger may be taking up Tiger Nation oxygen, but the coaches and players that make up the LSU football team are trying to keep their gaze on some other Flashes. The Tigers (2-0) return to Death Valley Saturday night to take on the Kent State Golden Flashes (6 p.m., ESPNU) in the team's last non-conference game before hitting the SEC schedule in the form of those other Tigers from Auburn next week.

Today in New Orleans 9.14.13

We've made it out of Friday the 13th alive, and it's time to celebrate with Filthy Linen Night on Frenchmen, an eco chic gala for the Green Project, and more. On this day in 1874, The White League defeated the New Orleans Metropolitan Police in the Battle of Liberty Place. Now, more ways to spend your Saturday. 

LSU: Mike the Tiger Questionable for Saturday's Game

As another LSU football Saturday approaches, the roar is already starting to pick up throughout the state. But we won't know until gameday whether one of the Bayou Bengals' most ferocious roars will be at Tiger Stadium Saturday night. Mike the Tiger -- the live mascot who lives in a habitat on the LSU campus -- skipped the home opener, and won't decide whether to make the trip over to Death Valley until just before game time. But don't worry, say Mike's trainers, he's healthy.
