BOTR Game of the Week, 2015 Week 6

Band on the road? I'm counting it.

Due to flood conditions, the LSU-South Carolina game, originally scheduled to take place in Columbia, is being moved to LSU. The game will still tally as a Gamecock home game; South Carolina will take the gate proceeds, wear the "home" uniforms (though in an interesting turn of events, they chose to wear white at home, leaving the usually white-at-home Tigers in Purple) and enjoy all of the comforts of home except for the actual location. But there's one slice of home they may not have anticipated.

LSU's Golden Band from Tigerland will be playing the role of SC's Mighty Sound of the Southeast, at least in some fashion. The Tiger Band is learning South Carolina's fight song and alma mater for use during the pregame. No word if they'll be going as far as playing the fight song when the Gamecocks score, but regardless, it's a great show of bandsmanship from a part of the country that knows what it's like to have weather drastically effect one's ability to play at home.
