Photo: LSU To Honor Late Mascot Mike VI With Helmet Decal

LSU will honor Mike VI this weekend with a helmet decal in the game against Southern Miss.

The Tigers will honor their former mascot in this weekend's game against Southern Miss. Mike VI passed on Tuesday after a four-month long battle with a rare form of cancer. Mike was diagnosed with spindle cell sarcoma in May. LSU announced last week that his cancer was spreading, and he recently headed into hospice care.

LSU’s beloved tiger mascot was born in 2005 and served as LSU’s mascot for nine years before his passing.

The Tigers are set to play Southern Mississippi this Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. E.T.
