Mayor presenting LSU football team key to the city; parade planned for this week
BATON ROUGE - Mayor Sharon Weston Broome plans to honor the entire LSU football team with a key to the city when it returns to the capital city.
The mayor's office announced Monday night that Broome would attend the upcoming victory parade at LSU. LSU announced after the 42-25 victory over Clemson that the university would host the celebration on campus Saturday, Jan. 18.
A parade running through LSU's campus will begin at 11 a.m. at LSU's school of music. The parade will go through LSU's campus and end up at the west side of Tiger Stadium via Victory Hill.
For those asking, 11 am parade start. Fans are encouraged to tailgate along the parade route (we'll update that exact route soon). We'll have a celebration in front of Tiger Stadium (west side) at the end of the parade. https://t.co/OBrNZWGX0k— Robert J. Munson (@RobertJMunson) January 14, 2020

National championship gear will also be available for purchase at the LSU Sports Shop and around Tiger Stadium. Parish County Line will provide live music outside of the Pete Maravich Assembly Center prior to the beginning of the parade in the commons of the PMAC.
