ATLANTA — Tyler Shelvin is looking for a second championship in the Super Dome, this time a national title.

The Lafayette native helped Notre Dame win a state title back in 2015, now the LSU sophomore has a bigger championship in mind in the same building.

Shelvin was second among LSU's defensive linemen with 39 tackles this season. The Tigers' defense played better down the stretch, holding opponents to just 18-points-per-game in the final four. A touchdown better than in the first 10 games.

But offense was most of the LSU conversation this year, and even the defense has mad respect for their quarterback.

"Man, he's the Heisman winner. A Heisman player is going to do that and we expect him to do that," he said after the Peach Bowl win of Joe Burrow. "We have high standards for him, he has high standards for us and we're just going to get it done"
