BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — As game day gets closer for LSU, Tiger merchandise is flying off the shelves all across Baton Rouge.
Shirts, hats, pants, even socks. They've all been one of the hottest tickets in town for several weeks.
Many stores have brought in extra shipments of the stuff to keep up with the demand.
Stores already have boxes of LSU BCS Champions gear. Of course, it's not out yet.
Most stores are anticipating a win, and big influx of people looking for that gear. For example, Dick’s Sporting Goods says they’re staying open late on Monday, and plan to open early at 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday.
As for game day, make sure to watch NBC33 News for our special called “Tigers on Target.” That will get started at 6:00 p.m. Team coverage will include live looks at everything happening all the way from the Red Stick to the Crescent City.
