LSU Jersey on Texas Roads

Is it a bad choice to wear a LSU Cycling Jersey around on the roads of the Houston areas? Will someone try to run me off the road?

At this point I would say you are safer wearing an LSU jersey than an A&M one.

Seriously, you'll be fine. There are a TON of LSU alums and fans throughout Texas.

As I recall from my Texas days they take their sports seriously especially football, but they generally feel sorry for people from Louisiana and Arkansas so you're safe. Around Houston they might run you off the road on general principle though.

I wouldn't wear any college sport jersey on texas roads tbh. If you are a texas fan you'll have some a&m or OU fan do something and vice versa.

My experience has been, and confirmed as of yesterday, that it doesn't matter what you wear someone in Texas will try to run you down.

Texans don't like bicycles or those who ride them. You can wear a shirt with baby jesus or nascar and they will still try to scare you off the road.
