BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A record crowd in attendance for last night's showdown between LSU and Alabama left an unprecedented amount of trash on campus Sunday evening.

LSU Police estimate that somewhere between 160,000-170,000  people were on campus for last night's game against Alabama.

Crews from LSU's Facility Services and inmates with area correctional institutions assisted with debris pick-up.

Captain Cory LaLonde says with record crowds comes the need to be patient with clean-up efforts.

"They are going to get it cleaned up. It's one of those issues where any time you have that large amount of people, the numbers go up and the amount of trash is going to go up and it takes time," LaLonde said.

Some clean-up workers said this was the debris left behind was the worst they've seen in four years.
