Les Miles’ tenth season as the LSU Tigers football coach was not one of his enjoyable seasons, as his club finished 8-5 (4-4 SEC) with a Music City Bowl loss to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
It would be wrong to bash Miles for the below-average season, which of course is only considered below average because of the high standards he set at the program. The offense was in transition, as Odell Beckham Jr., Alfred Blue, Zach Mettenberger, Jeremy Hill and Jarvis Landry were all playing on Sundays instead of at Tiger Stadium.
On the contrary, LSU only lost three underclassmen to the NFL after last season, compared to 11 in 2012 and seven in the proceeding campaign. The team will be built around the offensive line and Leonard Fournette, the sophomore running back who ended up with a ridiculous 5.5 yards-per-carry this past year. Fournette finished with 187 rushes for 1,034 yards and 10 touchdowns.
There’s no better time to take in an entire Tigers season, off the field and on the field with DISH sports packages, which includes the SEC network starting at $13 a month. All aspects of the Tigers season will be on display, from spring camps through the SEC regular season gauntlet.
Speaking of that regular season trek, below are the most and least expensive tickets on the secondary market for LSU football games this season, with information provided by TiqIQ.com. For those interested, LSU season tickets have an average price of $1,994.40.
Most Expensive: 11/7/2015 | Alabama Crimson Tide vs. LSU Tigers | Bryant-Denny Stadium | Average Price: $390.67 | Get-in Price: $199
Alabama was the SEC representative in last season’s inaugural College Football Playoff. Alabama was also LSU’s most agonizing loss. After winning three consecutive games against Florida, Kentucky and No. 3 Ole Miss, LSU hosted Alabama at night in Death Valley and experienced an excruciating 20-13 overtime loss at the hands of their rivals.
Most Expensive Home Game: 11/28/2015 | LSU Tigers vs. Texas A&M Aggies | Tiger Stadium | Average Price: $260.15 | Get-in Price: $114
After the loss to Alabama, LSU was caught slipping the following week and dropped a second consecutive game to Arkansas on the road by a final score of 17-0. Many thought the Tigers’ season was over after the Alabama game, but Miles rallied the troops with 12 days off and went into Kyle Field and defeated the Aggies in College Station, 23-17, in front of over a reported attendance of about 105,000 people. This year’s contest will be in Baton Rouge, and is the last regular season game.
Least Expensive: 10/3/2015 | LSU Tigers vs. Eastern Michigan Eagles | Average Price: $70.40 | Get-in Price: $16
The least expensive game of the LSU season is a quarter-season cupcake against the Eastern Michigan Eagles. After facing Mississippi State and Auburn in back-to-back weeks, the Tigers play at Syracuse and home against EMU before heading back into the SEC slugfest. Fans looking to enjoy the sights and sounds of Tigers Stadium for the first time can get in the door for $16.
