    I can't run this one. Looking for a volunteer to take charge.

    A word of advice...book your travel early. I suggest flying into New Orleans. Jet Blue is a good option. Southwest also. Stay in New Orleans and rent a car and drive to Baton Rouge on game day.

    I'm not sure how and when tickets become available, but I am in for two, possibly with parking if offered.

    We're definitely going, minimum 2, piisibly 4. Have not seen anything on tickets yet.

    Can't book yet on JetBlue or southwest- both are about 3 weeks out on reaching mid September reservations.

    Been looking forward to this game for 3 or 4 years and now one of my best friends decides to get married on this exact day. What the hell man.

    To all...there is no group buy...I'm not running this and no one else has stepped forward.

    What I will do is see if SU Box office will set up a special link so people can purchase through SU and all sit in the same several rows.

    Was just asking in general...Not even sure if we are going, so don't want to commit to anything right now...if we do go, I can assist whomever is running it by bringing stuff...

    Would LSU be considered the premier tailgating/CFB experience?

    Would like to book flight and room in the near future. One buddy already bailed and I'm awaiting the other. As I don't know NO well at all, are there any suggestions for hotels?

    Need more info...staying with family, guys, ???, you want the French Quarter sleaze or the quieter Garden District? Will you have a car? If you have a car do you want to stay in the suburbs to save $$$?

    We'll probably rent a car to get to Baton Rouge. We probably want to be near the action, but not necessarily in the middle of it. Just me and my college roommate.
