LSU fans will enjoy bacon-wrapped spud at Lambeau Saturday
GREEN BAY - LSU fans will need to bring an appetite for more than just badger when the Tigers take over Lambeau Field the first weekend of September.
Stadium executives revealed they'll serve a massive bacon-wrapped baked potato during Packers games this season. The potato - called the "The Pigskin" - will be ready for the Packers' first preseason game on August 12th. When contacted by WBRZ Wednesday, stadium officials said The Pigskin will be on sale for LSU's game on September 3.
ESPN reported earlier this summer The Pigskin is the key item at the newly-opened bacon-centric concession stand on the lower-level concourse outside of section 124.
The Pigskin will come with bacon strips plus chopped bacon and chili on top in addition to cheddar cheese, sour cream and chives. Hungry? There's more: bacon-crusted cheese curds, served too, with a side of bacon-ranch dressing.
ESPN said additional menu items created with the help of Delaware North, the team's food service provider, will be announced later.
The Pigskin sells for $12.
