gameday fashion then and now

In our podcast, we discuss game day style over the years at LSU through the changing football uniform, cheerleader uniform, new safety regulations and overall fabric, color and hairstyle trends throughout the decades worn by students attending football games. The overarching theme that links all of these aspects together is that they are all the different components that make up the fashion of an LSU game day. We hope to show the drastic changes over the years that have led to how our current game day looks.
