-- LSU beat Clemson 42-25 to win the National Championship on Monday night and LSU fans have started a GoFundMe to buy Clemson a better-looking mascot. 

The fundraiser, “Purchase Clemson a new mascot costume,” was started during the game and has raised $1,390 so far. 

“After turning on the national championship game on Monday the 13th I thought bad for The Clemson Tiger,” the creator, Dion Grossnickle, wrote in the description. “It seems that the University purchased their mascot costume from the clearance rack from TG&Y in 1981. All proceeds will be mailed to the Clemson University Athletic Department at the conclusion of the fundraiser. GO LSU!!!”
