Get ready Tigers fans. You're about to see something that comes along about once in a generation. This Saturday LSU will be wearing purple jerseys at Tiger Stadium when they take on South Carolina.

The thrice beaten Gamecocks will wear their white home jerseys in this weekend's "relocated" game in Baton Rouge.  Unbeaten LSU to wear road purple. The Gamecocks would normally wear white for games at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia. The game was moved to Baton Rouge because of flooding in South Carolina from Hurricane Joaquin.

The last time the Tigers wore purple jerseys for a home SEC game was against Vanderbilt in 1996.
