The LSU Tigers have been playing football since November 25, 1893. They played against Tulane and lost. The loss ended up sparking a rivalry with the Green Wave. In 1896, the team joined the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association and officially declared themselves the Tigers. They also finally won. The early 1900s were spent building the school’s football program and team. Now, they have a winning record of 797–415–47 and a winning bowl record of 26–23–1. All the work has led to eight division titles and 15 conference titles. They have called Tiger Stadium home since 1924. In 1931, the idea of night games was introduced. Since then, many Tigers games take place under the lights. In 2015, there were 40 former LSU Tigers on the active rosters of NFL teams, which is considered a notable accomplishment. Their Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees include Jim Taylor and Steve Van Buren. The team’s College Football Hall of Fame inductees include Tommy Casanova, Jerry Stovall and Bert Jones. Top rivals include the Alabama Crimson Tide, Arkansas Razorback and Auburn Tigers.

The Pelicans moved from Charlotte to New Orleans in 2002, and NBA basketball returned to the city for the first time since the New Orleans Jazz relocated to Utah at the end of the 1970s. The Pelicans originally kept their previous name, the Hornets, after they moved. The New Orleans Hornets made the playoffs in their first two years back in Louisiana.
Because of damage to their arena and surrounding floods following Hurricane Katrina, the Hornets were forced to play most of the 2005-06 and 2006-07 in Oklahoma City, and the team called itself the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets. They moved back to New Orleans full time for the 2007-08 season, and the Pelicans currently play at the Smoothie King Center.
For the 2013-14 season, the team changed its name to the New Orleans Pelicans, after the state bird of Louisiana. In the meantime, a new team—the Bobcats—had formed in Charlotte. The Bobcats reassumed the Hornets’ name and the history of the original franchise when it was located in Charlotte from 1988-2002). The NBA officially recognizes the Pelicans as having formed in 2002, when the team moved to New Orleans.
