"Burreaux" billboards have gone up in Baton Rouge celebrating Joe Burrow's Saturday night home game salute to LSU fans.

The image shows Burrow wearing his jersey with his last named styled as "Burreaux." He debuted the jersey during Senior Night before the team took on Texas A&M.

The Tigers beat the Aggies 50-7.

"I just wanted to do something to give a tribute to this state and this university that's been so good to me," Burrow said about the jersey.

A post on the LSU Football Facebook page announced the billboards were up across the city.

"Thank you, Baton Rouge!" the post reads. " These are up around the city."

No. 1 LSU will face off against No. 4 Georgia on Saturday, December 7 in the SEC Championship game.

Kickoff happens at 3:00 pm.
