How Tailgating Policies Help Schools Control Game Day Alcohol Abuse
by Paul Steinbach August 2003
Whenever Louisiana State University's football schedule produces a marquee Southeastern Conference matchup, at least 100,000 people roll into Baton Rouge to make the scene — the invasion beginning Thursday and lasting all weekend. Tiger Stadium (capacity: 91,600) has managed to squeeze no more than 92,141 fans through its gates (vs. Auburn in 2001), meaning that on most fall Saturdays, upwards of 10,000 fans descend on Death Valley only to park their vehicles and party — the time-honored autumn ritual known nationwide as tailgating. Once there, according to research commissioned by the LSU athletic department, the average tailgater logs 10 hours behind his or her wheels. "Our fans come the earliest, stay the latest and make a real Mardi Gras out of the football game," says LSU athletic director Skip Bertman.
