That roar you’ve heard from somewhere west of the Mississippi River will grow in intensity this year.

LSU finished the end zone expansion to Tiger Stadium, raising its capacity to 102,321.

“If you thought we were loud before, we just got louder,” coach Les Miles said at SEC Media Days earlier today.

Tiger Stadium is now the second-biggest venue in the SEC, behind Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium. Nationally, it’s behind only Michigan (109,901), Penn State’s Beaver Stadium (106,572), Ohio State (104,944) and Tennessee (102,455).

Three other SEC stadiums — Alabama’s Bryant-Denny (101,821), Georgia’s Sanford Stadium (92,746) and Florida’s Swamp (88,548) — also are in the top 10.

Texas A&M is in the midst of a two-year, $450-million expansion that is projected to take Kyle Field to 102,500 seats when it’s completed in August 2015.

Be as loud (and drunk) as you want corn dogs. You ain't winning anything without Nick Saban. 

Toodles.
