Welcome to Death Valley. The day might start innocently enough with Tiger fans luring opponents in with some of the best food Louisiana has to offer. But when you enter the stadium, you are greeted with a stadium filled with the loudest fans you'll ever meet.
This isn't anything new for LSU. They have been known as one of the most raucous fans bases in the country for a while now. Even legendary Alabama head coach Bear Bryant acknowledged how difficult it is to play in Death Valley:
Baton Rouge happens to be the worst place in the world for a visiting team. It’s like being inside a drum.
BOOMER! SOONER! Two words that are seared into every Oklahoma Sooners fan. Not only are those two words that are boomed throughout the stadium, they are the names of the two horses that pull the Sooner Schooner through the stadium after each score. These are also some of the most well-traveled fans in the country, with some supporters traveling over 12 hours to catch an Oklahoma game.
Here is one fan, Carson Osborne, who has no shame in spelling out why Sooner fans are the best:
We're the best of the best. We're loud, we're proud, we're classy, and we're loyal. As the old saying goes, "We're Sooner-born and Sooner-bred, and when we die, we'll be Sooner-dead." So band wagoners, please go. We don't need y'all anyway.
