LSU’s Tiger Stadium saw a major renovation this offseason. The stadium’s capacity has passed the 100,000 mark and will now seat 102,321 fans.

Additionally, the team’s gameday locker room also received a major makeover. The Tigers finally got to see the finished product on Friday, and they were impressed.

The new digs aren’t quite on the level that Texas A&M brought to the table last month, but everything looks great nonetheless.

The Tigers’ season opens up against Wisconsin at a neutral location – the Houston Texans’ NRG Stadium – so they’ll have to wait until the home opener against Sam Houston State on September 6 to use the new locker room on a game day.
