BATON ROUGE - LSU has sold out of season football tickets for the seventh straight year, assistant AD for ticket operations Brian Broussard announced on Monday.
LSU sold 68,650 season tickets for the 2010 home slate, equaling the school-record amount sold in both 2008 and 2009.
LSU has sold out of season tickets every year dating back to the 2004 season when 66,232 season tickets were sold the year following the Tigers' 2003 BCS National Championship. LSU sold 68,230 season tickets in 2007, 67,700 in 2006, and 66,300 in 2005.
"The demand for football season tickets continues to be very strong," Broussard said. "Unfortunately, we had to turn away a few thousand ticket requests again this year. We will continue to look for ways to try and help those fans who don't have season tickets an opportunity to be a part of LSU football."
Last year, LSU recorded the second-highest single-season average in Tiger Stadium history as 92,489 fans saw the Tigers' seven home games. That average was just shy of the school-record mark of 92,619 set in 2007. LSU ranked among the top 10 in the nation in attendance for the 10th straight year.
LSU also set the single-game attendance mark against Florida a year ago when 93,129 fans saw the Tigers and Gators play a nationally-televised game on CBS.
LSU opens its 2010 home schedule on Sept. 18, hosting Mississippi State at 6 p.m. in a game that will be televised by ESPNU. Other home games for LSU in 2010 include: West Virginia on Sept. 25, Tennessee on Oct. 2, McNeese State on Oct. 16, Alabama on Nov. 6, Louisiana-Monroe on Nov. 13, and Ole Miss on Nov. 20.
