- - while the clemson tigers have - the distinct advantage of - experience... having won two ou- of the last three national- championships... the l-s-u- tigers... have a distinct - advantage of- their own.- it's called home field- advantage... not at tiger - stadium, in baton - rouge... but right down the roa- at the mercedes-benz- superdome, in new orleans.- according to google maps... the- two venues are just 81.4- miles apart... and clemson's- ticket allotment is only 20...- of the- 74-thousand seats.- if you recall... l-s-u was- gifted the same convenience, in- the 2008 b-c-s national - championship game... won by - the tigers 38-24... over ohio - state.- - - - whatcha say coach o...- - "no, i think it's great.
I thin it's something- that for some reason when we- found out that it was going to- be in new orleans, we - - - - felt like we were going to be - there.
Nothing was talked about- but i'm sure it was talked- about in small circles.
And wha- an opportunity it would be for- us, the state of- louisiana, for everybody to be- there.
I like it because it's a- home field advantage.
- i like it because we don't have- to get on an airplane and go- down there.
I think it's- going to be a tremendous night,- but you know what, after the- first snap it's just- like a fight.
All that stuff- doesn't matter.
You've got to - execute, and clemson is going - to be a hard team to beat.
We'l- have to play our best."
- - - tigers versus tigers... l-s-u - and clemson will kick off the - national championship game, fro- the superdome... at 7 - p-m
