Southern University Athletics Director, Roman Banks joins Matt to kick off hour two of After Further Review to talk LSU moving their spring football game to Mumford Stadium. The game is being moved due to renovations with the Tiger Stadium field turf. How long have these talks been going on between LSU and Southern?
“We’ve been in conversation with them for over a month now,” Banks said. “We felt it could be a great opportunity for the two university’s to work together and unite the city of Baton Rouge.”
What are some of the logistics that have gone into moving the game?
“First thing we still have logistics to go over. We are just confirming it because of all the paper work with the waiver and the NCAA,” Banks said. “Now my team is working with their team to work out the rest of the logistics for the game on April 18th.”
What are the other logistics that need to be worked out before April 18th?
“So obviously, with the SEC most of their scrimmage games are on tv so we have to call about that,” Banks said. “Southern will probably be out there around 9 am for their game, and then LSU will follow. We will have other events around the game as well.”
