Only four teams remain in the NFL Playoffs. Three of them have multiple LSU Tigers starting. The other has none. Let’s make sure our rooting interests are in order!
NFC Championship Game: BUCS vs PACKERS
When: 2:05 CST on FOX
Former LSU Bucs Players: LB Devin White, RB Leonard Fournette, LB Kevin Minter
Former LSU Packers Players: None
The Packers are the only team in the way of guaranteeing an LSU Tiger will be a Super Bowl Champion. Will they finally see defeat Sunday? It’sssss unlikely, but the Bucs have two Tigers serving as major contributors that make this game worth watching.
AFC Championship Game: BILLS vs CHIEFS
When: 5:40 CST on CBS
Former LSU Bills Players: CB Tre’Davious White, LS Reid Ferguson
Former LSU Chiefs Players: RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB Darrell Williams, S Tyrann Mathieu
While this should be an incredible game, it hurts my heart. The Bills are clearly America’s Team, but the Chiefs have been the NFLSU team all year. Hopefully this game lives up to the hype because I’ll probably pull for the winner in the Super Bowl either way.
