Bayou Brew 10/24: Holly Jolly Honor

Today, we have the SEC Freshman of the Week, new shoes, and a segment of Mic'd Up.

Good morning. Write it down! The Tigers will play at Alabama next weekend at 6:45pm on CBS! Until then, check out some of the fun from Homecoming Week.

What did we pour into today's Brew?

🏈 Freshman of the Week
🎤 Mic’d Up
🐯 And much, much more!

The Real Deal. Former professional athlete turned social media influencer JT Barnett joins The Real Deal to talk about the importance of content creation, creativity and elevating student-athletes' brands.

Film Room. Head Coach Brian Kelly and Gordy Rush meet again in the Football Film Room to highlight clutch plays on both sides of the ball against Army: Andre Sam's big-time interception, and Malik Nabers stepping on the gas for a 51-yard touchdown reception from Garrett Nussmeier.

🔼 Holly Jolly Freshman. LSU rookie running back Trey Holly made his debut as a Tiger on Saturday. His debut was good enough to win him an SEC Co-Freshman of the Week award! He rushed for 91 yards on just six carries, including a 67-yard touchdown. His honor is the sixth for a Tiger this season.

🔼 Cajun Classic Champ. LSU men’s tennis player Chen Dong won Louisiana-Lafayette’s Cajun Classic! He defeated Tulane’s Alex Bancila 7-5, 6-2. Three other Tigers were competing in consolation matches through round three and the final round.

🔼  Tasha Tough. Today, we’re mourning the loss of former LSU women’s basketball assistant coach, Tasha Butts. She fought a two-year battle with advanced stage metastatic breast cancer. Her diagnosis inspired the Tasha Tough campaign which brought awareness and raised money to bring quality care to women who can’t afford it through the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Tasha played basketball at Tennessee and in the WNBA with the Minnesota Lynx before starting her coaching career. She spent 8 seasons at LSU (2011-19) and was part of four 20-win seasons and six NCAA Tournament appearances. Earlier this year, she was named the head coach of Georgetown.


Hit the track with Morgan Smalls! We have the 3x First Team All-American mic’d up. Last indoor season, she won bronze in the high jump at the SEC Championships and recorded the third best jump in LSU performance list history at the Tyson Invitational.


Today’s trivia question…

Do you know how many games in-a-row the Tigers have rushed for more than 200 yards?
