WATCH: Shaquille O’Neal hoists LSU cheeleader into the air

By Jesse Reed

It’s good to be king. And for LSU, there might not be anyone to compare with Shaquille O’Neal when it comes to Tigers royalty. Shaq took advantage of his influence on Saturday while his school hosted the Mississippi State Bulldogs, as you’re about to see.

LSU was up 14-0 at this point after Leonard Fournette scored the second touchdown of the day for the Tigers, so there was good reason to celebrate.

Another reason for optimism is the fact that quarterback Danny Etling looks sharp early, completing 10-of-14 passes for 117 yards and a touchdown.

Of course, having Shaq on the sidelines as a glorified cheerleader doesn’t hurt, either. It’s been quite a party so far in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
