Fans cheer on the Tigers during national championship parade


BATON ROUGE, La. (LOCAL 33)(FOX 44) – LSU fans got the chance to cheer on their team one last time following the National Championship win against Clemson.

The winning team rode through LSU’s campus on several floats throwing beads and trinkets to fans below. Coach Orgeron, along with several former players also tagged along on the parade floats.

For long-time Tiger fans like John Meng and his son Trip, this moment was the closest they’d ever been to the National Championship winners.

“It’s just surreal, it was fun to watch,” Meng said.

But for Meng, it wasn’t just the fanfare and the football players that made this moment special, it was the opportunity to share the moment with his son.

“Looking down the road, when he’s grown, we’re going to be able to talk about this.”

Meng wasn’t the only parent excited to share this moment with their children. When the clock ended on the national championship game against Clemson, Corey Knight had been watching. So when today finally rolled around and he saw his coach and his team in person, the feelings were unmatched.

“I already knew once we got the quarterback, we got talent,” Knight said. “We got the best talent in the world.”
