LSU Tigers to wear white helmets for homecoming game vs. Troy

The LSU Tigers will host Troy for their Homecoming game Saturday night in Death Valley at 7 p.m. ET on ESPU/ESPN App. The Tigers' equipment staff announced Thursday on social media that the Tigers will don their purple jerseys -- as they do for all home games vs. nonconference opponents -- with the rare white helmets.

Entering Saturday, the Tigers are 63-24-3 and have won 16 consecutive homecoming games, including two homecoming wins over Troy in 2004 and 2008.
