LSU didn't reach the CFP or win the SEC Championship, but the Tigers have the opportunity to enjoy the warmth of the Florida sun and finish 2022 the right way.

Earlier in the day, head coach Brian Kelly said Boutte would be “unavailable” for the Citrus Bowl and will not play against Purdue.

Kelly added Boutte was enrolled at LSU for the spring semester.

The 6-foot, 205-pound junior from New Iberia caught 48 passes for 538 yards and two touchdowns this season.

Boutte had announced earlier in the month that he planned to play his senior season for the Tigers.
