Media outlets report that seats were reserved in the press box Monday for Carley McCord and Edward Aschoff.

McCord, 30, died in a plane crash in Louisiana last month. She was the daughter-in-law of LSU offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger.

McCord, 34, had also been honored with a reserved seat in the press box when the New Orleans Saints played the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the NFL playoffs on Jan. 5.

Aschoff died Dec. 24, on his 34th birthday, after battling pneumonia.
