It has been ten years since Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita ravaged the Gulf Coast. The LSU Tigers and McNeese State both remember that time vividly as many of their current players lived in those areas during those tragic storms.
They are doing all they can to repay the fans for sticking with them.
The two teams, who play each other in Baton Rogue Saturday night, will be wearing special helmet decals to honor everyone who was affected by the storms in some way. It is a terrific way to honor those who were killed in 2005.
While no one will be able to forget what happened to the Gulf Coast on that fateful day in August ten years ago, the first weekend in college football will likely be able to ease the pain in some way. The emotional game kicks off at 7:30 Saturday on SEC Network.
