CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Tonight, there was a battle of tigers between LSU and Clemson as the two teams faced each other in the biggest game of the year for college football.
Hours before the big kickoff, fans were gathering together in pools of orange and purple for the National Championship game, held in New Orleans.
When it comes to college football, these teams mean business.
For fans, finding a seat was hard to come by.
Some fans said they were representing their school.
And for others, their love for the team is deeply rooted.
