The #1 ranked LSU Tigers football team arrived at their hotel in New Orleans last night at 6 p.m. to a big crowd of fans.

The Tigers didn't have far to go either. They left Baton Rouge for the 70 mile trip that took a little over an hour to get to the Big Easy!  The Tigers are getting geared up for the BCS National Championship Game on Monday January 9th against Alabama.

The Tigers arrived five days in advance and will start practice right away. The Tigers first practice will be this morning.

Upon arrival, a press conference was held and Les Miles and some of the players attended.

Watch the press conference here:
