Since Tiger Stadium first opened in 1924, LSU has gone 404-145-18 in Death Valley. And since Les Miles took over as coach, the Tigers are 45-3 in Saturday night games played on their home turf, which has a max capacity of 102,321.
But none of that changes how Mississippi State safety Kivon Coman is viewing Saturday’s Week 3 road matchup with LSU. When asked why it’s so hard to play night games in Death Valley, his response was succinct and to the point:

Two seasons ago, Mississippi State pulled off a 34-29 road win over then-No. 8 LSU. That was one of just three Tigers home losses over the past three seasons.
