BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - There was national attention on the LSU Tigers and their fan base in Baton Rouge Friday morning.

HLN's "Rivalry Express" tour broadcasted live from Walk-On's on Burbank Road to preview the LSU-Auburn matchup.

The Capital City is the first of eight stops on the tour of college football rivalries. Host Robin Meade said the Tigers have set the bar high.

"I kind of feel sorry for the next seven schools that we're going to because Baton Rouge did such a good job that it's going to be hard to live up to; it really is," Meade explained. "Gosh, we had, well, the tiger here, but we had the band and the dancers and the painted posse. I think it just really shows a legacy and a heritage of spirit here in town."

Kickoff for the game is Saturday at 6:45 p.m. It airs nationally on ESPN.
