BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33) — Some of LSU's most famous faces got down and dirty for a good cause Wednesday.
Well-known athletes, coaches, teachers, and students were nominated to kiss Bentley the pig for an annual cancer fundraiser. The campus community donated money in support of their favorite nominees. The winners of the contest had to pucker up and lock lips with Bentley.
Winners included football coach Les Miles and Tigers centerfielder Mikie Mahtook. "It was a cute little pig. It was the first time I've ever seen a pig that up close and personal," says Mahtook. "Kissing it wasn't so bad either. Anything you can do to help fight cancer is huge."
All the money raised will go towards the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
