Florida fans traveling to Baton Rouge for the game against LSU probably will want a better seat Saturday.
As mentioned by The Advocate’s Ross Dellenger, Gators fans will be seated in the north end zone of Tiger Stadium, which is across from the normal location for visiting fans. As pointed out by Cody Worsham of Tiger Rag, the Florida fans will be located next to LSU’s student section, which has a reputation as one of the rowdiest in the SEC.

Right next to the student section.
Should be fun. https://t.co/VUO51ZkXkX

It’s never easy being a visiting fan in Tiger Stadium, but it might be extra tough for those Gators fans who might find the LSU student section a little too close for comfort.
Dellenger reported that the move was made because of the logistics involved in hosting Florida instead of South Alabama. The LSU-Florida game was originally scheduled for Oct. 8 in Gainesville, but it was postponed after concerns related to Hurricane Matthew. Florida bought out Presbyterian and LSU did the same to South Alabama to make the game Saturday happen.
Later, Brian Broussard, LSU’s assistant athletics director for ticket operations, provided an update.

Advice to Florida fans making the trip: Pack earplugs.
