Louisiana’s favorite 9s, Drew Brees and Joe Burrow’s meeting was really a surreal moment for the Heisman trophy winner. The kid from Ohio grew up a rooting for the Saints because of Brees.

“I know you hear this a lot, but you were my idol growing up,’ the 23-year-old Burrow tells the soon to be 41-year-old Brees.

Tonight’s 7:15pm kickoff will be the final game of Burrow’s collegiate career. He will then likely end up being the top overall pick in this upcoming NFL draft. The Cincinnati Bengals have the #1 selection; and they’ll be on the clock April 25th in Las Vegas. The Saints own the 24th overall pick.
