The biggest game of the week in college football might also be one of the greatest socioeconomic experiments that the sport has ever produced. As many LSU fans as could possibly obtain tickets - by legal or less than legal means - have made their way to Morgantown to aid what would have been an already spectacular atmosphere as the LSU Tigers take on the West Virginia Mountaineers.
With two early marquee wins under their belt - Mississippi State in Starkville and Oregon on a neutral site - LSU are deservedly ranked No. 2 in the nation. They're winning on the back of their stellar defense, but that defense should be tested against West Virginia on Saturday night. The Mountaineers are averaging 42 points per game and have one of the best passing attacks in the nation.
LSU fans were apparently running into classrooms on the WVU campus yelling "TIGAH BAIT" during the day on Friday, so this should be an unbelievable amount of fun.
