Louisiana’s two favorite quarterbacks, LSU’s Heisman Trophy-winning Joe Burrow and New Orleans Saints’ Super Bowl XLIV MVP Drew Brees, met in person for the first time on Sunday, Jan. 12.

The meeting was spurred by one LSU’s final practice before the National Championship at the Saints’ practice facility on Airline Highway in Metairie.

It was also shared heavy on social media.

In a video posted to Twitter, Burrow told Brees in between practice drills “I know you get this a lot, but you were my idol growing up. I was a Saints fan because of you.”
