Homecoming Queen Sydney Brown and King Hunter Hartwig walk off the field after being crowned during a pre-game ceremony Saturday night.

Both the Homecoming king and queen crowned during a pregame ceremony in Tiger Stadium on Saturday have made the University and Baton Rouge their homes away from home.

Sydney Brown and Hunter Hartwig, both mass communication seniors, are out-of-state students - Brown from Park City, Utah and Hartwig from Katy, Texas.

Brown is a member of Zeta Tau Alpha, LSU Homecoming Committee, Advertising Federation, Order of Omega and College Democrats.

"The people who are on Homecoming Court are generally extremely involved," Brown said. "They really set a great example, and I was so honored to be in the company of the nine other people who were on court with me."

Hartwig is a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon, LSU Ambassadors, STRIPES and the Interfraternity Council.

"Student involvement is so important to our University," Hartwig said. "It's what drives our University. It's what drives the student section at LSU. And just seeing [the homecoming court at the game] might make people want to get involved and really help our University out."
Looks like it will be Tennessee vs. LSU for the SEC title this year. As a "loyal Vol" I hope that LSU brings the team that played Kentucky and that Tennessee brings the team that played Georgia. That way we will at least have a shot.
