Photos: LSU Fan Day 2014, Pete Maravich Assembly Center, Carl Maddox Field House

As football season fast approaches, purple shirts flooded the Pete Maravich Assembly Center and Carl Maddox Field House on Sunday for LSU Fan Day, as more than two thousand fans stood in lines for autographs by their favorite football players.

Dozens sat anxiously on the floor, while hundreds of others stood in snaking lines beneath for hours well before the players arrived in their pads and jerseys, to the sound of cheering and applause.

Some of the lines were so long that event staff roped them off. But as whole families dressed in purple and gold waited or sat sprawled on the floor keeping themselves busy, many were adamant about their devotion to purple and gold.
