A young LSU superfan who captured the attention and hearts of Tiger fans everywhere this past season will be in the stands at the Superdome on January 13, reports WBRZ.

9-year-old Colton Moore lives in Alabama but cheers on the purple and gold. His mother posted a picture to Facebook on Friday of Colton with a huge smile on his face after he found out he would be attending the game thanks to a "sweet sweet lady" named Kristie Riche Allen.

This will be Colton's second time at an LSU game. In October of last year, Jennifer posted a photo of him saying how much he loved the Tigers. The photo quickly spread and Ed Orgeron's assistant arranged for Colton to meet the coach at the LSU v. Ohio State game.

Colton, who is a spina bifida patient, "was pretty much in shock" when his mother told her. Now, she said, they're just counting down the days until they're in New Orleans.

The Tigers will take on Clemson in the national championship on January 13th at the Superdome.
