NCAA Football: College Football Playoff National Championship-Clemson vs Louisiana State

Bill Hancock presents LSU Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron with the national championship trophy after defeating the Clemson Tigers in the College Football Playoff national championship game at Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

New Orleans is home to some of the finest eateries in the country.

It was a natural question to ask of LSU coach Ed Orgeron after his Tigers defeated Clemson 42-25 for the College Football Playoff national championship late Monday night. On ESPN’s “SportsCenter, Scott Van Pelt asked what the celebratory meal would be, Coach O answered in a way only he could.

In short, Orgeron had his eyes on a ham sandwich and, maybe, some boudin.

“We’re just simple folks,” Orgeron said. “We love our life. I love my family. My personal time with them — we don’t go out, and we don’t do things like that. We represent the state of Louisiana so we’re excited.”

Orgeron is a national treasure.

Joe Burrow threw five touchdown passes, ran for another score and finished off one of the most accomplished seasons in college football history by leading the top-ranked Tigers to a 42-25 victory against No. 3 Clemson on Monday night in the playoff final.

“He’s one of the greatest players in LSU history,” Tigers coach Ed Orgeron said after the game. “He’s done so much for the state of Louisiana and LSU. We are so grateful to Joe Burrow.”

Burrow’s five touchdown passes and 463 yards passing are the most for a BCS or College Football Playoff title game. So were his six total touchdowns.
