LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva said refunding tickets and game expenses will cost the athletic department at least $1.2 million and as much as $3.2 million. LSU’s costs include paying McNeese State its $500,000 guarantee for the game, as well as costs for personnel such as police, ushers and ticket takers.
Alleva said the school has an insurance policy for such issues, but he isn’t sure how much will be covered because a brief part of the game actually was played.
