LSU students prepare to see their former QB in the Super Bowl
BATON ROUGE — LSU’s parade grounds were filled with students and alumni, swarming around a football game on Saturday, a day before the Super Bowl featuring former Tiger quarterback Joe Burrow .
“I thought it was crazy that the number one pick was going to the Super Bowl in two years when no previous number one pick was able to do that. So that’s a first, and it’s from LSU” , said Kiro Sedkey, graduate.
Sedkey and his former classmates, who all earned degrees in chemical engineering at LSU, were preparing for the big game by throwing a soccer ball.
“We knew the minute we had him, he was our guy, and he will be our guy for life,” said LSU graduate Patrick Caro.
For this group of young engineers, this year’s Super Bowl will be unlike any other, with a classmate starring in the game.
“A little bit of bragging rights and a little more pride in your school when Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase went to your school. It’s fun,” said graduate Austen Bailey.
Not only will their hearts and minds be on Burrow during the game, but so will their money, betting on the Bengals victory.
“Joey B was always the underdog. He made me money before and he will make me money again,” Caro said.
The Los Angeles Rams are four-point favorites. Everyone we spoke to on campus said they would take Joe to beat those odds.
