BATON ROUGE- Crews dismantled the south end zone scoreboard at Tiger Stadium, marking the end of an era for LSU fans.
The scoreboard had to be removed to make way for the South Stadium expansion project that will add thousands of seats as well as two new scoreboards.
"The quality you're going to see on the south is actually going to be more enhanced than what you'll see on the north, they're going to be new boards, brand new state of the art high definition, so we're excited about that opportunity," said Eddie Nunez with LSU.
While the demise of the old scoreboard, which was nearly ready to be replaced anyway, is bittersweet for some, many say they're excited to see what's next.
"It's kind of emotional because Tiger Stadium is such an important icon for our school but then I think of the fact that they are taking the time to remodel it and all the money that is going into it, it's an end of an era, but I think it's going to benefit us a lot," said Dorothy Beach, an LSU student.
The expansion is expected to be complete by the 2014 season.
