Of course, there were several LSU officials standing all around Beckham and players on the field while the team celebrated.

During the postgame celebration, National Football League receiver and LSU alum Odel Beckham Jr. was seen on video giving out $100 bills to receivers Justin Jefferson and Jontre Kirklin right in front of photographers and media members.

"It was a joke", LSU associate athletic director Robert Munson first told reporters Tuesday.

The former LSU receiver was spotted passing out hundred-dollar bills to LSU wideouts Justin Jefferson and Jontre Kirklin on the field after the game.
