'Mad (cowboy) Hatter' Les Miles, LSU players claim victory in Rodeo Bowl

Les Miles’ headwear was a bit different than his traditional white baseball cap for Saturday’s AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl festivities.

LSU is playing in Houston, so of course the Tigers coach started the night wearing a cowboy hat. And he ended it by wearing a championship belt over his shoulder, celebrating the Tigers’ Rodeo Bowl win over bowl opponent Texas Tech in the evening’s rodeo-related events.

Everyone seemed to get into the spirit of the night, with most players and coaches from both teams wearing cowboy attire. Check out LSU assistants Ed Orgeron, Bradley Dale Peveto, Kevin Steele and Corey Raymond at the event. It was apparently a close competition between the Tigers and Red Raiders in events like roping and barrel racing. The Tigers won the touchdown dance competition, with LSU running back Leonard Fournette among the participants. At the end of the night, LSU claimed the rodeo belt by winning the hay bale stacking event.
