Game Day came early since the game had a 3:30pm kickoff.
We headed out to campus and set up our tailgate.
We tailgated on frat alley since Brad's cousins are only 3-years out of school there at UT.
One of his cousin's boyfriends was president of ATO a few years back so we tailgated near their house.
LSU Purple and Gold in the sea of Orange!
Even the dogs were decked out for game day!
I was glad to see other LSU fans tailgating near us.
Tailgating near the frat houses brought back some memories.
At the Sigma Chi house they had pledges saving parking spots for actives.
Thanks to cousins Mike and Kathy who brought most of the tailgate gear!
Thanks to cousin Billy for hosting us the entire weekend!
We had a blast!
Fall football season complete with a good tailgate is my favorite time of the year!
You wouldn't be in the South without FireFly vodka at your tailgate.
Cousin Katie and her boyfriend who graduated from UT just 3-years ago.
One of the best parts of the day was when one of my life-long friends came and visited us!
Ty and I went to grammar school in Baton Rouge together and LSU.
He travels to several of the away games each year.
So great to see him and catch up!
Brad in front of the ATO house.
These guys like to get their party on!
This is where we used the bathroom and when we first got there some freshman girl and puked all over the bathroom.
Talk about really bring back some memories!
Then we made our way to Neyland Stadium for the big game!
Brad has nicknamed the stadium the 'House of Snooze'.
He couldn't believe how quiet a stadium that seats 102,000 fans could be.
He was right.
Even our LSU section was more enthusiastic than their fans.
Oh, and did I mention that the Tigers won?
38 to 7!
We're still #1 BABY!
