Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — LSU is marching toward a possible national championship and the fans are coming along for the ride.
Thousands are expected to make the trip to the Georgia Dome this weekend to see the number one ranked Tigers take on the Georgia Bulldogs in the SEC Championship Game.
Despite the high cost of tickets and having to make that long journey to Atlanta, fans are still excited to see their Bayou Bengals in action.
Lsu fan Zach Paxon said, "(It’s) pretty exciting. I've never been to something like that. It's going to be something that I can share with other people that they'll be jealous of.
"I'm a ‘super senior’. It's my last football season, and O didn't want to miss it," stated LSU senior David Taghehchian.
According to online ticket seller StubHub.com, tickets to the big game are going for as much as $950.
