Branding opportunity for Tiger's football program.

LSU has made a jersey change to better their betterment of the new SEC television contracts that require every conference game to be televised.

This is another branding opportunity for LSU and our football program," says equipment manager Greg Stringfellow. "Nothing else changes about the jersey."

The addition of "LSU" to the front of the jerseys marks the first time in modern school history that the name of the school will appear on the jersey.

The "LSU" measures 2 1/8 inches wide and is 3/8 of an inch tall. It's located just below the neckline and right above the number on the front of the uniform. It will appear on both the white and the purple uniforms.

"I like the new look," LSU senior running back Trindon Holliday said upon seeing the uniform for the first time. "With LSU on the front, it gives me more pride in wearing the jersey. I think it's a great addition to what was already a great looking uniform."

The Tigers open the '09 season on the road against Washington September 5th.
