LSU places cut-outs of fans in Tiger Stadium for first home game

BATON ROUGE - Nope, you're not seeing things. There are fans in Tiger Stadium... Sort of.

Just days after LSU finished taking orders from fans who wanted to pay for a cut-out of themselves in the stands of Death Valley, we finally got to see what that will look like on game day. 

And it only gets better the more you look. Dozens sent in photos of their dogs, making for what is undeniably the best fan section you've ever seen.

According to a spokesperson for the athletics department, about 1,500 fans paid to have their two-dimensional likeness - or that of their pet apparently- placed in the stands before kickoff Saturday. That's about three times what school officials originally expected to sell through.

LSU announced the promotion last week as a way to allow fans to help cheer on the Tigers even if they couldn't attend home games in person. Fans also have the option to pick up their $50 cut-out at the end of the season.

Like the rest of the SEC, LSU has slashed its attendance capacity in Tiger Stadium due to COVID-19. The restrictions mean only about 25,000 fans will be able to attend a game at one time.
