One special tiger fan was surprised with last minute tickets to Monday's game.

Oliver Prats suffers from Spina Bifida and when he missed his chance to attend the SEC Championship in Atlanta, some stepped in to get him to New Orleans for the National Championship.

Trey Prats, Oliver's father says the family had tickets to attend the SEC championship in Atlanta but ended up in a near by emergency room instead. Part of Oliver's shunt broke off causing him to miss the only thing he wanted for Christmas, to see Joe Burrow and the LSU team in action.

With the help of some generous LSU board members Oliver got the chance to see them. The family received tickets to the game on Monday night, with a view.

"This was a 'are you kidding'. This is wow. I think it was a little humbling to that someone was so generous and be able to do something like this for my son," Trey Prats said.

The family will be watching from a suite as the LSU Tigers take on Clemson at the Superdome.
