BATON ROUGE — The entire LSU football team will be honored with a parade this Saturday in Baton Rouge.

The victory parade, scheduled for Saturday January 18, 2020, on LSU's campus, was announced following LSU's 42 - 25 win over Clemson on Monday. According to LSU, the parade will run through campus beginning at 11:00 a.m. at LSU's School of Music, which is located on the north side of campus on Dalrymple Drive.

The parade will travel through LSU's campus and will culminate in a celebration held inside the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. The National Championship Celebration will begin at 12:00 p.m. inside the assembly center. The celebration was originally planned for outside Tiger Stadium, but officials "implemented contingency plans...due to anticipated weather conditions."

In the event of severe weather, officials say the parade will be cancelled, but the celebration inside the Maravich Center will still take place.

Seating inside the Maravich Assembly Center is general admission. Fans will enter the Maravich Assembly Center through the two ramps on the south side of the PMAC. Floor seating will be reserved for guests of LSU football and the university.

Campus will open for tailgating at 8 p.m.
