Why LSU Fans Have Consumed Nearly 50,000 Jell-O Shots at Omaha Bar

Bidding for its seventh title, LSU has had a downright swell time this NCAA baseball tournament. The Tigers have dropped just one game in their entire run—a narrow loss to Wake Forest in the Men’s College World Series—and stand on the verge of their first national crown since 2009.

LSU’s fans, however, may have exceeded the fun had by the team.

Tigers enthusiasts have purchased 46,269 Jell-O shots at Rocco’s Pizza in Omaha, an all-time record in the establishment’s annual Men’s College World Series-centric contest.

In fact, LSU’s total exceeds the Demon Deacons’—the contest’s runner-ups—by 38,637.

The contest is for a good cause; all proceeds go to food banks for the eight competing programs as well as the Food Bank for the Heartland in Omaha.

Tigers fans may have outdrank Stanford by a ratio of almost 51 shots for every one— validating every Louisiana stereotype known to man in the process—but their efforts have seemingly not been in vain.
