BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU isn’t giving up hope that Mike VI will attend one or more home football games in 2015. But it’s not pushing the point either.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1fTiyxt) Mike, LSU’s live tiger mascot, declined to attend any football games in 2014 by refusing to enter his trailer. LSU, in a news release Monday, said attempts will be made to load Mike into his trailer for the first three home games of the 2015 season, including this Saturday’s game against McNeese State. The live mascot has long been a part of the LSU community and its athletic traditions. Since Mike VI arrived on campus in 2007, he has attended 32 of the 57 home games.
