Lucky fans win tickets to LSU-Bama

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Half a dozen lucky Tiger fans are taking an unexpected trip to the big game on Monday night.

"It's pretty exciting.  I didn't believe them at first, I thought they were just messing with me," said Patrick McClure.  "It's just a good, good thing."

McClure, an Iraq War veteran, won a pair of tickets and a two-night stay in New Orleans from the LSU Alumni Association and Raising Canes.

Two Raising Canes employees also won a pair of tickets each.

The good luck wasn't limited to Baton Rouge.  G.W. Sons of Plaquemine won a pair of tickets from the Boys and Girls Club after he bought ten chances in a fundraising raffle.

"I hadn't called nobody, so I shouldn't be getting a phone callback.  She said, 'You've won tickets to the BCS.'  I said, 'No, you're lying.'  She was like, 'You really did.' And the whole background went to screaming an whooping and hollering and I was like, "Well, I guess I did win," said Sons.
