                                                              The LSU Tigers are the athletic teams of Louisiana State Universitymarker. They participate in the NCAA's Division I, in the Southeastern Conference. It fields teams in 14 varsity sports (5 men's, 7 women's, 2 coed). Its official team nickname is the Fightin' Tigers and the school mascot is Mike the Tigermarker. The school colors are purple and gold. LSU's nickname is a throwback to its Confederate heritage and was drawn from the Civil War fame of two Louisiana brigades who fought so fiercely that they became known as the "Louisiana Tigers."


Based on winning percentage, the University's athletics program is consistently one of the best in the nation. Its arenas include Tiger Stadiummarker (football), Pete Maravich Assembly Centermarker (basketball, volleyball, gymnastics), Carl Maddox Fieldhouse (indoor track), Bernie Moore Stadium (outdoor track), Tiger Park (softball), and Alex Box Stadiummarker (baseball). Important rivals in football include one of the longest running college football rivals with the Ole Miss Rebels, and the Tulane Green Wave. Other rivals include the Alabama Crimson Tide, Arkansas Razorbacks, and the Auburn Tigers.

Keeping with the French/Cajun character of South Louisiana, LSU support can be seen by its distinctive spelling of "Go Tigers" as "Geaux Tigers".

National Championships

LSU has won 46 team national championships, 42 of which are recognized by the NCAA, tying them for 5th all time in total national championships. Four of them are not recognized because there was not an NCAA sanctioned event in place at the time to determine a champion, and thus polls were used.

^ Prior to 1939, the NCAA did not conduct a tournament to determine the men's basketball national champion, and thus this is a "Mythical National Championship" as determined by polls.

^^ The NCAA does not award a national championship in Division I-FBS football. Instead, polls are used to determine national champions. In this case, AP Poll and the Coaches Poll, the two biggest selectors at the time, awarded LSU the national championship. Many members of the sports media and fans refer to Division I-FBS national championships as "Mythical National Championships" (a national championship that is won without a tournament).

^^^ In 1998 major Division I-FBS conferences came together to created the Bowl Championship Series in an effort to establish a more legitimate national champion. LSU won the 2003 BCS national championship and the 2007 BCS national championship. These are not NCAA sanctioned national championships, and because of that, many members of the sports media and fans still refer to them as Mythical National Championships.
