If you're looking for an excellent upper-middle option that is still a slight distance from Tiger Stadium, but still close enough to get there quickly, I think you might be interested in the Cook Hotel and Conference Center at LSU, located on the back east side of campus. It is close to downtown Baton Rouge, but can be reached from the south side by a short drive or an hour bus ride. The hotel is not full or expensive if you don't book in advance, and I found that staying at the Staybridge Suites in Baton the Rouge is one of the best options. I get up at 2: 30 p.m. on Sunday, November 5, 2016 to watch the LSU Tigers game against the Alabama Crimson Tide, and it's near the stadium, so I am sure you will get there quickly.

I don't know what he's really planning on Saturday, but he'll at least get an idea of what it's like to see Baton Rouge in an atmosphere of matchday. There is so much to do on the LSU campus, the most popular game days are those that travel to LSU. Mike the mascot, or "Live Mike Tiger," also performs at various LSU events, and although he hasn't left his habitat in 2016, he has appeared at games he hasn't attended before.
