LSU is getting ready to host Florida on Saturday by feeding the school’s live mascot a pre-game meal in the shape of the Gators logo.

The raw treat is nothing new for Mike VI who gets a “cake” made of a variety of meats each year on his birthday.

Mike VI’s anthropomorphic counterpart did some gator hunting of his own, hitting the Louisiana bayou to hunt down a few reptiles ahead of Saturday’s contest.
