Several scam artists spent the LSU/Florida game behind bars, after being accused of selling phony tickets to fans.
LSU police say a handful of Tiger and Gator fans bought tickets to the sold out match up from scalpers on the street.
But were turned away at the stadium gates, when their tickets wouldn't scan.
Campus police say the tickets, nearly identical to the real thing, were fake.
They say with cooperation from the victims, officers were able to track down and arrest all five of the suspects accused of peddling the fake tickets.
