LSU Baseball Fans Consumed Ungodly Number of Jell-O Shots at MCWS

LSU may have won the 2023 College World Series title on Monday night, but Tigers fans also won an important contest this week in Omaha, Neb.: the CWS Jell-O Shot Challenge.

LSU fans dominated the competition against seven other schools at Omaha’s Rocco’s Pizza, the bar and restaurant where the contest is annually held. The Tigers purchased a record-shattering 68,888 Jell-O shots during the span of the College World Series. 

The next closest amount purchased by a specific team’s fandom was 7,622 bought by Wake Forest supporters.

Here’s a breakdown of what the final tally for each school turned out to look like.

Each shot at Rocco’s cost $5, with $1.50 of that going to charity—$1 to a local food bank in the school’s town and 50 cents to Omaha’s Food Bank for the Heartland.

LSU’s Jell-O shot record of 68,888 might seem unbreakable, but observers probably thought that was the case when Ole Miss supporters set the previous record of 18,777 last year.
