LSU coach Les Miles congratulates the New Orleans Saints:
"I watched every snap of the game with my family. It was a magnificent game. This game was much bigger than football. This win is so great for the city of New Orleans and the state of Louisiana. It's bigger than a Super Bowl win; this victory make a dramatic statment as to just how great a state this place really is. There's no other place like it. I'm so happy for Coach Payton and Drew Brees and the rest of the Saints. They deserve this and they are to be congratulated."
