LSU, Tabasco Announce 'Bengal Brigade' Spirit Group
BATON ROUGE — LSU Athletics and TABASCO® Brand have partnered for the 2013-14 athletic year to bring Tiger fans The Bengal Brigade presented by TABASCO® Brand on Tiger game days.
The Bengal Brigade presented by TABASCO® Brand is a student spirit group that can be summed up with one word: Electric! Members’ sole purpose will be to get fans on their feet and make each fan’s experience at LSU athletic events enjoyable. In addition to interacting with fans, members will work hand-in-hand with the LSU athletic marketing and promotions office to assist with game day promotions.
The Bengal Brigade presented by TABASCO® will work LSU Athletic events, including soccer, volleyball, football, men’s and women’s basketball, gymnastics, softball and baseball. In addition to interacting with the crowd during events, The Bengal Brigade presented by TABASCO® can be seen outside the stadium and on the concourse prior to games with giveaways and other prizes.
This college football season, TABASCO® Original Red Sauce will help keep the food in the stands as hot spicy as the plays on the field. As the Official Hot Sauce of the LSU Tigers, McIlhenny Company’s famous sauce will be available at concession stands during the seven home football games at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge.
McIlhenny Company has produced TABASCO® brand Original Red Sauce for 145 years on Avery Island, Louisiana, less than 100 miles southwest of Baton Rouge. Since its start, the recipe, the process and the ingredients – fully aged red peppers, salt from Avery Island and high-quality, distilled vinegar – have remained much the same.
In addition to Original Red Sauce, the TABASCO Family of Flavors® includes Green Jalapeño Pepper Sauce, Chipotle Pepper Sauce, SWEET & Spicy Pepper Sauce, Habanero Sauce, Garlic Pepper Sauce and Buffalo Style Hot Sauce.
