Former LSU great Shaquille "Shaq" O'Neal greets fans after being recognized on the field in the first half between the Tigers and the Razorbacks, Saturday, November 23, 2019 at LSU's Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, La.

But for the College Football Championship in New Orleans, there's a lot more to look for, from whether a few notable LSU alumni will be in attendance, to whether President Donald Trump wears a red tie or whether Joe Burrow outplays LeBron James.
