Thaddeus Moss gives dad Randy the win his family has been waiting for


NEW ORLEANS -- LSU Tigers tight end Thaddeus Moss can remember sitting in the stands at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome when he was in middle school, watching his dad, Randy, catch two passes for the 49ers in a 34-31 loss to the Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII.


It was his father's final NFL game, and as good as the Hall of Famer was, Randy Moss never won a Super Bowl.


Before Monday night's College Football Playoff National Championship against Clemson, Thaddeus got a text from his dad, showing where he was sitting in the stands.


Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports He also got a pregame text from his mom, letting him know, "Win or lose, we still love you.


Earlier in the game, Moss caught a 6-yard touchdown reception from Burrow to give LSU a 28-17 lead heading into halftime.


Moss, sitting in a metal folding chair in front of his locker in the bowels of the Superdome after the game, was surrounded by a thick haze of cigar smoke from his teammates as they danced and celebrated.
