Here is a look at the alternate uniform and helmet LSU will be wearing Saturday vs. Mississippi State to honor the Silent Season of 1918. Per LSU:
One hundred years ago, LSU football players hung up their cleats for a greater cause. Many students and faculty of the Ole War Skule left the campus to serve in World War I, continuing the school’s military tradition and canceling the 1918 gridiron season.
In honor of those who did not return, 30 trees were planted in the Memorial Oak Grove with one additional tree dedicated to “The Unknown” missing in action.
To commemorate the century mark of the Silent Season of 1918, LSU will emerge Saturday, Oct. 20, from the Tiger Stadium chute in specially designed uniforms that salute the past and pay homage to heroes.
