Joe Burrow joins in as the LSU band plays 'Neck'
The song “Neck” has become a tradition for the LSU band during each Tigers football game, and LSU fans have a specific lyric they chant whenever the chorus is played, which is quite unsafe for work to say the least. With the Tigers in New Orleans for Monday’s College Football Playoff National Championship Game, the chant even made its way to Bourbon Street the day before.
During the CFP National Championship Game between LSU and Clemson, the LSU band played the song in the 4th quarter with its team holding a 17-point lead. The Jumbotron then showed Joe Burrow on the sideline joining in on the chant, which was greeted by cheers from LSU fans.
Here you go. Joe Burrow joins in on Neck…

With this being Burrow’s final collegiate game, he’d figured he’d get it in one last time before his departure. And he and LSU couldn’t be blamed for feeling comfortable in that moment, with the Tigers seemingly in control and on their way to its first national championship since the 2007 season.
