Congrats to the Bengal Tigers on a well deserved Championship!

Did LSU change their name?

The Bengal Tiger in Louisiana Military Heraldry dates back to 1838 with the formation of the Washington Artillery of New Orleans which was one of the units the University got the name from...

if you look at the details of the crest of the 141st Field Artillery, you will see the tiger in the crest is a Bengal Tiger.
It was used more back in the 70s. Not so much today. I just think it sounds cool. The current live mascot is a mixed breed.

So that's a NO...LSU didn't change there name.
