Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge has over 100,000 seats. It’s almost impossible to tell most of them apart from far away.
Now, one will certainly stand out.
LSU has unveiled a new seat in Tiger Stadium to honor prisoners of war and those soldiers who are missing in action.
The seat is cordoned off by a chain, a wall and fencing. It’s painted black and white with the symbol for the National League of POW/MIA families on it as well

The print on that plaque is a little small. It reads in full:
“This unoccupied seat is in honor of those who are still prisoners of war (POW) or missing in action (MIA) and symbolizes their will always be a place in this stadium awaiting their return.”
College football has so many unique and wonderful traditions. Chalk this one up as a wonderful way to honor those who have served, but have yet to return.
