LSU and Notre Dame took part in a hot chicken eating contest during the Music City Bowl’s welcome party on a riverboat Saturday night, and the winner might surprise you.

The Fighting Irish won 25-19, according to the school’s Twitter account. The individual award, though, went to LSU redshirt freshman offensive lineman Alex Cheramie, a Texas native.
