LSU Excited To Be Playing In BCS Championship Game

Updated:
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) _ Barely more than a week ago, LSU running back Jacob Hester was at home in Shreveport for a late Thanksgiving celebration, telling family and friends that he didn't want to talk about or watch football.

Sunday night, he found himself in a crowd of teammates in Baton Rouge, chanting: ``We're going to the ship!'' -- as in the BCS Championship in New Orleans.

LSU's world has been turned on its head since last weekend, when they defeated Tennessee in the SEC championship game -- and with both West Virginia and Missouri losing their respective games -- jumped from seventh to second in the BCS standings.

LSU now must wait about five weeks before kicking off against Ohio State on Jan. 7 at the Louisiana Superdome. Team activities will be limited during the next two weeks, which are the final two weeks of classes for LSU's fall semester.
