Shreveport Classic Football TicketsOnce known as the State Fair Classic, the Shreveport Classic takes place during the State Fair of Louisiana every year and boasts a series of 160 games across the span of 106 football seasons. When the fair began in 1906, there were immediate plans to organize a football game as a way to drum up more foot traffic for the event. The fair would not host its first game, however, until 1911 when college football games were first becoming an annual event at the State Fair. Generally, teams from Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas would travel to the fair to compete, which would usually result in a combination of Southwestern Athletic Conference teams and the hometown team from Centenary College. The most popular game soon became the Arkansas and LSU matchup, and this popularity would become evident during the 1915 State Fair when the stadium saw record-setting attendance numbers that exceeded that of any other game in Southwestern football history at the time.
