BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Motorists who want to celebrate Louisiana State University’s latest college football national championship victory will be able to buy a specialized license plate.

State lawmakers authorized creation of a special LSU National Champions 2019 license plate that can be used in place of a regular state-issued plate.

Gov. John Bel Edwards has signed the bill into law.

The LSU Board of Supervisors first must settle on a design before anyone can seek the new plate.

It will cost $51 a year on top of regular fees.

The state will keep $1, and the remaining $50 will go to LSU for scholarships.
