Congratulations to Louisiana State, winner of the Wiz Readers' Choice Poster Schedule of the Year. The Tigers saved the best for last. After finishing second to Auburn in group voting, LSU charged to a convincing win in the final, garnering 44.8% of the the 8,067 votes cast to decide the winner.
The Tigers' poster features a powerful image of shutdown cornerback Patrick Peterson over an image of Tiger Stadium.
"This is a great honor for our university and our faithful LSU fans," said Jason Feirman, LSU's athletics publications director. "Winning this contest would not be possible without the community of fans of the LSU Football pages on Facebook and Twitter, along with our readers on LSUsports.net. They rallied the vote to put us in the top spot."
"A tremendous thanks to our staff photographers Steve Franz for his photo of Patrick Peterson and Chris Parent for his photo of Tiger Stadium. Also a huge thanks to our Marketing & Promotions office and Sports Information office for assisting with the concept."
“We take tremendous pride in putting out a unique poster for every sport at LSU and are humbled by the recognition."
