BATON ROUG, LA (NBC33) — He's one of LSU's best weapons on defense and to many of his fellow players he's known as the honey badger.

That is why some people compare him to an animal known to attack bears and other animals quadruple his size without fear.
What does the honey badger have to say about the comparison.
" I think he's a pretty bad animal," said Tyrann Mathieu,cornerback for LSU. " It's really about me getting an edge... Anyway that we can just keep our defense motivated trying to stay in control of the game." "
The honey badger Mathieu is also notorious for changing up his fashion style.
so far this year he says he has debuted three different looks.
