Scores of LSU Tiger fans converged on the university’s campus waiting for a parade to kick off a celebration of the football team’s new status as national champions.
The presentation of the national championship trophy, along with remarks from Governor John Bel Edwards, Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome and other noted officials were in attendance.
LSU topped of its greatest week in football history with a national championship celebration on campus, culminating at the Maravich Assembly Center with a packed house of more than 13,000 in attendance.
LSU quarterback Joe Burrow wore a cap backwards and shades in obvious non-game day mode.
Just 16 hours after LSU won the national championship, Tigers coach Ed Orgeron had somewhere he needed to be – Nashville.
Orgeron arrived at the Opryland Hotel and Convention Center where the American Football Coaches Association convention is taking place.
He was there to pick up the Amway Coaches Poll championship trophy and the AFCA FBS Coach of the Year trophy, which was voted on exclusively by coaches, in the aftermath of LSU’s 42-25 win over Clemson in New Orleans.
