It's the last thing the LSU players see before they leave the locker room and spill out onto one of the most famous playing fields in the country.
Mounted at the top of the double doors is a piece of the crossbar from the goal posts that stood in Tiger Stadium from 1955-84. Painted onto that crossbar in purple and gold letters is a very fitting message: Win!
Over the years, Tiger Stadium has proven to be one of the most decided home-field advantages in all of college football, especially at night. Since 1960, the Tigers are 221-60-4 (.782) under the lights at Tiger Stadium, which is truly a spectacle, along with the entire game-day experience when LSU plays a home game.
